Toledo s COSI has been awarded $148,787 for improvements to its Science Cafe, U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) announced yesterday.
The museum must match the grant, awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Museums for America grant program.
The Science Cafe offers a rotating set of hands-on science experiments that COSI relates to current events and exhibits, such as the space shuttle launch or its dinosaur exhibit, spokesman Lori Hauser said.
