COSI is excited to announce its next exhibition, Meet the Innovators, opening December 11. The exhibition is the result of a joint effort between COSI and associates from Honda who came together to provide the vision and creativity for the new engineering-focused mobility exhibit. The concept for the exhibit was developed as part of an exploratory partnership between COSI, Honda and PAST Foundation in an effort to help build career awareness and prepare students for science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) jobs in tomorrow’s Central Ohio workforce.
Meet the Innovators uses hands-on activities and video interviews to showcase the exciting research and development work taking place at Honda’s Central Ohio operations. The exhibit provides a backdrop for visitors to explore exciting careers in STEAM.
“This exhibition demonstrates the power of collaboration,” said David E. Chesebrough, Ed.D, President and CEO of COSI. “Teams from COSI, Honda and PAST Foundation worked together to create a fun, engaging, educational experience for our guests featuring elements designed to inspire young people to go into STEAM careers.”
The effort put into this exhibit is another example of Honda’s commitment to encourage and energize the future workforce of tomorrow.
“Honda wants to educate the next generation workforce through strategic partnerships with organizations like COSI, and STEAM-focused initiatives like this new “Meet the Innovators” exhibit,” said Frank Paluch, president of Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “Our Honda associates invested a great deal of time, effort and passion to create this exhibit and are excited to share their experiences with students interested in STEAM-related careers. We also hope this exhibit will inspire other companies to participate in this important initiative by creating their own STEAM-related exhibits.”
The exhibition explores how STEAM-based skills can help prepare students to create the as-yet unimagined transportation technologies. Guests will be given the opportunity to:
