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.
