COSI

COSI, Columbus, Ohio's dynamic Center of Science and Industry, inspires the scientists, dreamers, and innovators of tomorrow. Opened in 1964 at Memorial Hall in downtown Columbus, COSI moved in 1999 to a new 320,000-square-foot home designed by internationally-renowned architect Arata Isozaki, creating one of the largest modern-built science centers in the United States. COSI continues to represent a significant investment in the economic development and community revitalization of downtown Columbus.

As a "center of science," rather than a standalone science center, COSI has established embedded partnerships that enrich our guests' experiences, including WOSU@COSI, the only working television station in a science center; the Ohio State University (OSU) Labs in Life, working research laboratories created through a partnership with The Ohio State University and staffed by OSU researchers; Battelle's STEM Innovation Network, in partnership with one of the world's leading research institutions; the Columbus Historical Society; and the STEM-based Metro High School, among others.

Very organized and the Girl Scouts loved it.
Was hoping I could get 4 hours added to my time volunteered.
States I had 0 hours and 0 impact. I did enjoy my time spent there . Thank you.
