Interactive Videoconferencing

COSI’s Interactive Videoconference programs connect your students with scientists, doctors, and COSI educators for a LIVE interactive two-way experience. All videoconference programs fulfill the Scientific Inquiry and Application Components of the Ohio College and Career Ready Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.

COSI uses Zoom, an online videoconferencing service, for all Interactive Videoconference programs. Sites have the option to connect with a videoconferencing codec or any internet enabled device (ex: computer with webcam and microphone).
