It all started with a Big Bang.

Find out how and find out how we know that!

The Universe used to be filled with hot, dense matter, smoothly distributed across a rapidly expanding space.  How did that become the complex Universe of clustered stars and galaxies that we see today?  That complexity includes humans who can figure out the history and future of the Universe by careful observations that bridge its vast distances and enormous age!

Make Rube Goldberg Contraptions With us This Weekend!

Join COSI team in Gadgets Cafe this weekend for some new "design-based learning" activities.  We'll be playing with a plethora of common items (paper towel tubes, string, marbles, plastic cups, rubber bands, etc) to make Rube-Goldberg-style contraptions!!!

Upcoming events for inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs

Started Friday morning at OSU's Wake Up Start Up event and got to hear a pitch from Dr. Melissa Bailey for her IXM mobile eye exam concept. Dr. Bailey works with COSI as part of our Labs in Life. This gave her access to lots of COSI guests as subjects to gather her normative data. We're glad to be a part of this innovative entrepreneurial idea.

Last Day of Maker Corps (For Hannah)

I can't believe it is already our last weekend of the Maker Corps program here at COSI! This weekend we are leaving all the project planning up to our guests! For instance today we did stitch! and all things sewing related were open! Nathaniel and I brought all of our fabric, thread, beads, buttons, batting, conductive thread, LEDs, batteries and much more down to our gadgets area. There guests could make anything they wanted, and I'll tell you what you guys get creative! There were flamingos, pillows, skirts, bows, vests, light up creatures, toys, just about anything that could be thought of was made!
