|COSI SCIENCE CENTER|
I know, brave, or crazy...but I learned something...and not just that teenage girls talk 'a lot'!
During part of the trip we visited COSI in Columbus, OH. COSI is a really big, super cool, hands on science center. The place was great! We had a ton of fun and I recommend a visit (it's fun for grown ups too!)
During the last 20 minutes of our visit, we were hanging out in the lobby waiting for our group to line up for the bus. And during this time there was a show up on stage.
Do you remember as a kid, shuffling across the floor in your socks in the winter, then touching the first person you reached? What happened? You shocked them right!!??
I loved doing this. It was fun and always made me laugh.
As I sat back and watched the crowd of volunteers go up on stage I actually got a bit concerned...The kids all began to form the longest static-electricity chain I'd ever seen.
As the first person rubbed his hands all over the source of electricity, the long chain of kids circled around the lobby and braced for the shock.
As they did, the boys hair began to stand up on end. At this point. the instructor discussed how 'positive energy lifts up his hair, as well as the pom-pom he was holding. Negative energy, (like the type which was about to happen) would bring it down...'
HE REACHED OUT...AND TOUCHED THE FIRST PERSON IN THE LINE!
P O W!!!!
A CHAIN REACTION OF POSITIVE ENERGY ZAPPED EVERYONE IN CIRCLE!!!
Do you realize that all of us have this ability every day?
No, not to shock those around us with little zaps of electrons...
