You can see the video here.  Today we will be talking with Dr. Farnaz Maleky from The Ohio State University Food Innovation Center about how nanotechnology is advancing the food supply.

We welcomed over 200 guests as they not only had a chance to explore all of COSI’s classic exhibits, but also had fun exploring art with 3 guest artists. Thanks to Tracy Settle, Charlotte McGraw and Eric Marlow, event attendees took part in fun, adaptive art activities.

Accessibility Update—COSI Introduces Sensory Friendly Movies!

Within the last 2 years COSI has been focused on identifying ways to make our building more inviting and welcoming to children, teens, and even adults with disabilities and special needs. Last year we introduced our Autism Activities Events and the response from the community has been GREAT! It has been an awesome experience working with those within the Columbus community to develop these special after hour events. Their feedback and willingness to assist COSI in making our Autism Activities Events the best they can be has been quite a rewarding experience.
