In December, COSI President & CEO Dr. David Chesebrough will be retiring after over ten years of service. By making a gift in David’s honor, your contribution will support the continuation of one of David’s greatest passions at COSI – the development of impactful teen programming.
The Health Clinic is one of the most popular exhibits within little kidspace, featuring a medical helicopter, an ambulance, an eye doctor’s office, and a clinic room complete with doctor/patient props and equipment. Here, some children become doctors, wearing lab coats, consulting X-rays, administering “shots,” and undertaking eye exams, and others transform into emergency responders, rushing patients to the hospital through an ambulance ride or helicopter flight. Such experiences allow children to engage in pretend play, bringing the world to themselves on their own terms and “trying on” the lives of others.
In September 2017, with the help of our donors, partners, and community, COSI will open a redesigned and refreshed Health Clinic in little kidspace. We invite you to give a gift toward the little kidspace clinic renovations.
