All Generation Rx lab experiences are free with COSI admission.
The Generation Rx Lab is a drug education research lab within the Labs in Life exhibit at COSI and run by scientists from the College of Pharmacy at Ohio State. In this lab, COSI guests conduct hands-on experiments related to the science of drug action. Because drug topics spark young learners’ interests, the lab is currently researching if teaching science through a pharmacology context provides students with an effective platform to engage in the scientific process and learn basic biology and chemistry concepts. Therefore, one current research project provides classrooms visiting COSI on a field trip with the opportunity to visit the Generation Rx Lab and conduct one of their educational programs. Because it is a working Ohio State research lab, educators must ensure they meet the following criteria before reserving their space in the Generation Rx Lab:
