The Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, Ohio, is a 320,000 square foot interactive facility that has been educating and inspiring adults and children since 1964. The center features more than 300 hands-on exhibits, a giant screen 3D movie theater, Ohio’s biggest planetarium, live shows, and more.
The Energy Explorers exhibit explores how energy is produced, and how the world around us is powered, from where we live and work to our transportation systems. Learn how to become an energy hero by playing the Energy Explorers Game. You’ll see how the energy you use affects your wallet, the environment, and the planet.
With interactive exhibits, you can find ways to save energy at home and when you’re driving. Learn what happens when there’s a blackout in the neighborhood. You’ll need to redistribute power to get the lights back on. Experiment with electric current and give yourself and your friends a shock, and discover how to power light bulbs with a hand crank.
Which is faster? Driving, biking, or walking? Sometimes, getting around town might be quicker walking than being stuck in traffic. You can put it to the test in this fun game.
