Lorain Public Library System to Distribute Free Science Kits from COSI


Lorain Public Library System will be distributing 50 free science kits from the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) during their Solar Powered Crafts program on Wednesday, August 4.  The program takes place at Little Library on the Lake at Lakeview Park in Lorain from Noon to 1 p.m.


The COSI “Learning Lunchboxes” were built in partnership with NASA and are filled with five days of engaging hands-on science activities for children in grades K-8.


The kits being distributed in Lorain feature a space theme. All materials needed to complete the activities are included, and the interactive content is tied to Ohio learning standards.


The Ohio Library Council (OLC) and COSI have partnered to distribute more than 12,000 of these kits to public library systems across the state.


“We know the pandemic created an education gap for many students. Our libraries are working hard to help bridge that gap,” said Michelle Francis, Executive Director, Ohio Library Council. “Ohio’s public libraries are known for their outstanding summer reading programs, but we are thrilled to work with COSI to make science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning opportunities more assessable to Ohio’s youth this summer.”


One science kit per family on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.  In case of inclement weather, the Solar Powered Crafts program will be canceled and families can get science kit distribution information by calling the Main Library at 440-244-1192.
