COSI Visits Chardon Hills
A whole day full of science fun was brought to Chardon Hills by The Center of Science and Industry (COSI). The Investigating Energy program was designed to introduce students to the science of energy. Students had the opportunity to use an anemometer to test wind speed, built circuits by attaching a variety of components to a power supply, use blocks to transfer energy, and use the "Watts Up" meter to determine the amount of energy being used by household objects. The program was complete with vocabulary words like "biomass," "conductor," "geothermal,"kinetic energy," and "nuclear energy." Students also learned science process skills such as observing, inferring, hypothesizing, and predicting. Needless to say, the program left Chardon Hills students and staff very "energized" about science!
