Teen Tech Studio

Teens can hang out, mess around, and geek out in COSI's Teen Tech Studio during selected hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays to work with COSI mentors and explore technology. COSI's Teen Tech Studio offers multimedia activities for middle and high school students, including audio/video production, 3D modeling, and video game design.

Using Apple's Logic Pro and Garageband software and audio freeware, COSI's teen tech studio is a fully outfitted audio production space that allows teens to develop their skills in making beats with virtual instruments, using microphones to record voices and acoustic instruments, and taking that audio through the final process of editing and mixing. COSI's video editing workshops and summer camps are presented in collaboration with WOSU Public Media and focus on allowing teens to learn lighting, filming, and editing techniques through the use of professional grade DSLR cameras, green screens, and Abode's Premiere software. The Teen Tech Studio also features 3D printers, Makey Makeys, video game consoles, and platforms for game and controller design.


Participants are challenged to find the fewest number of moves to transfer discs from one rod to another.
