While it is a roadtrip away, and a journey into what is considered “enemy territory” in this state, a trip to COSI in Columbus makes for a powerful field trip for kids.
Bigger than any science center in Michigan, Cosi was rated top science center in the nation by Parents magazine. It includes a gadget cafe where kids can order experiments brought by volunteers in plastic tubs. Kids and parents can choose from an appetizer list, a main course, and a dessert, each of different difficulty level.
There is enough to do for two days at the center — so consider it as a weekend destination.
