Honda and COSI to launch nationwide roadshow today in Bellefontaine


Honda and the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), the “#1 Science Museum in the Country” voted by USA Today’s 10Best, are coming together to launch a nationwide initiative—the Honda Engineering Roadshow—to deliver 20,000 hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) kits, called Engineering Learning Lunchboxes, to students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The first stop will be in Bellefontaine at Kroger.

Distribution of the kits will take place in partnership with local food banks across the country to help feed hungry lives and hungry minds.

The new Engineering Learning Lunchbox was created in partnership with and as a result of a contribution from Honda. The kit contains 10 hours of STEM content and provides five engineering-focused learning activities showcasing the diversity of STEM careers at modern manufacturing companies like Honda. It aims to inspire and educate youth and families about the many facets of engineering, including aerospace, chemical, electrical and structural engineering.

500 children and families are expected to be served.

This new roadshow includes stops across the nation, from California to North Carolina, over the next year.

Join them for the first distribution event, in partnership with Second Harvest Foodbank of Clark, Champaign, and Logan Counties, to kick off the Honda Engineering Roadshow with COSI. The event starts at 10:30 a.m.
