COSI Academy

COSI Academy is a career exploration program for high school students considering science, technology, engineering, math, and health careers. Academy students meet at COSI on the first Saturday of each month from October through May with additional opportunities throughout the school year.

COSI Academy students meet at COSI on the first Saturday of each month from October to May. Each meeting includes a field trip to area labs and technology companies, or to colleges and universities offering science programs. In addition to monthly meetings and field trips during the school year, COSI Academy students take a one day college visit in early summer.

"I've been obsessed with science for as long as I can remember. I have an innate need to understand the world around me. Although some of that need is met through advanced science classes and independent study, nothing has opened me to the world of science like COSI Academy... COSI Academy has given me more opportunities than I'd have ever dreamed of, and I've loved every minute of it." --Laura, Dublin Coffman Senior
