(Image gallery to follow article)

I remember taking field trips as a child to The Center of Science And Industry (COSI). The long bus ride seemed to take days, but we were always rewarded with a kid’s museum built for fun, tinkering, and science. Even as an adult I am in total wonder of this place. Its magical atmosphere seems almost otherworldly with creative possibilities.

Newest SnackHack: CottonCandy Cow!

Everyone, Meet Dr. CottonCandy Cow!

by Daric Gill

Every group needs a leader. CottonCandy Cow is this for the SnackHacks. Acting as the reluctantly appointed patriarch of the group, CottonCandy Cow tends to stand as the voice of reason for the rest of the SnackHacks.

SquidSteak On A Palette (detail)

SquidSteak Exists!

Heeeere’s SquidSteak!

Now introducing SquidSteak. This handsome little guy is the down-home kind. A city-squid now, but a true country-squid at heart. Boisterous and overstated, SquidSteak can be  a handful sometimes. He and his best friend Eggaphant are a regular Odd Couple. Their opposites certainly attract!

We’re entering SquidSteak’s life just when he’s finding out something special about himself–that 3rd eye. Until recently this eye was simply just another looking tool. But now, it’s something more. Something mysterious. Intermittent superpowers maybe?–or just hyper sensitivity? I guess only time will tell. To be continued…
