WHAT’S NEW

COSI Memberships for Metro Students

While the school year is quickly wrapping up, learning doesn’t have to come to a halt this summer. We are pleased to announce Metro  students now have the opportunity to sign-up for a complimentary 1-year COSI membership, thanks to the generous support of Battelle.

With interactive exhibits that encourage discovery, a variety of new teen programs, and a focus on STEM, COSI is a valuable resource that can complement the work that happens throughout the school year here atMetro. Learn more about teen programming at http://cosi.org/teens.

To kick-off this program, COSI visited Metro today for a live demo with middle school classes. Middle school students received a COSI membership application to be completed and returned to the school office by Friday, May 23. This entitles the student to a free Individual + Guest membership ($80 value) The membership is free, but sign up and a parent signature is required.  Parents may upgrade to a family membership for just $35.

High school students may also sign up for the Individual + guest membership offer. The application have been forwarded to all students at their Metro email address.

We hope your student will be able to take advantage of this special opportunity. If you have any questions, contact Mr. DeWitt at Metro or the COSI staff at 614.629.3121 or membership@cosi.org.
