COSI Science Spots

Cameo Theater COSI’s Science Spot traveling science exhibition comes to Sidney. Enjoy an assortment of Science spots listed below. ​​

Participants press against a rubber membrane that covers a large drum. As the pressure builds within the drum, air shoots out the hole in the bottom and blasts passers by with a puff of air.

Participants use air pressure from a heavy weight to launch a foam ball high into the air.

Participants use two dimensional blueprints and wooden blocks to build a three dimensional structure. Blueprints come in a variety of levels of difficulty ranging from Easy to Very Difficult.

Participants see how iron fillings suspended in a liquid form an interesting creation called ferrofluid, which, when placed near a strong magnet, create interesting designs/forms.

Participants can see how strong magnetic poles can repel each other with these floating discs. As they press down on the disc, they can feel the magnets forcing the disc skyward. They also see how magnetic levitation can be used for such new technology as maglev trains.

Participants wrap a rope around various pulleys to determine how additional pulleys reduce the amount of work needed to move an object.

Participants are challenged to correctly arrange colored blocks in the correct order using two dimensional blueprints. Blueprints come in a variety of levels of difficulty ranging from Easy to Very Difficult.

Participants construct two pyramids using only the few wooden blocks provided.

Participants use a magnetic wall and Frigits to build a track for a marble to roll down and see the force of gravity in action.

Princess Ball

Lehman High School; Sidney, OH

Little girls who watch their older sisters get ready for the prom don’t have to feel envious this year. They will have their own dance to go to with the best date of all, their fathers or father figures. Gateway Arts Council presents The Princess Ball, a father – daughter dance held each spring. The event will take place at Lehman High School, 2400 St. Marys Avenue, Sidney from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M. Tickets cost $10 for a father with one daughter or $15 for a father with more than one daughter.

Disc jockeys will provide music, refreshments will be provided. In addition to the photo booth for $5, the young princesses will be able to take part in several princess themed activities. A raffle will feature special items including a grand prize.

Proceeds from The Princess Ball help Gateway Arts Council carry out its mission in Shelby County to make art available “anywhere”, at “anytime”, and for “anyone”. Gateway fulfills this mission by providing arts and cultural programming to schools; presenting performances and concerts for children, families, and adults throughout the year; providing a year round art gallery; making grants to other area arts organizations; presenting free concerts; providing musical instruments to school music students; mounting a major fine art exhibit featuring area artists each year; and providing free art activities for children at area festivals and events.
