COSI, Columbus, Ohio's dynamic Center of Science and Industry, inspires the scientists, dreamers, and innovators of tomorrow. COSI provides an exciting and informative atmosphere for those of all ages to discover more about our environment, our accomplishments, our heritage, and ourselves through involvement in exhibits, demonstrations, and a variety of educational activities and experiences. Since 1964, COSI has engaged with over 33 million people from all 50 states and around the world, both on-site and through its award-winning outreach programs. 


The COSI Science Festival will be hosting Citywide Star Parties at over 15 locations. This free family-friendly event includes activities, music, food trucks, and the stellar COSI Planetarium. Attendees can even get up close and personal with the stars with outdoor telescope viewing (weather dependent). 


Join Besa and COSI to support a Star Patry in Franklinton. Besa volunteers will help with set up, tear down, engaging with event attendees, and passing out swag. No science knowledge required! The most important qualities are a positive attitude, willingness to help, and be ready for a fun and rewarding experience!
