  • COSI is a science museum and research center located in Columbus, Ohio in the United States. Originally opened in 1964, COSI was relocated to a 320,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki along a bend in the Scioto River in 1999. COSI features more than 300 interactive exhibits throughout themed exhibition areas. As a “center of science and industry”, COSI established embedded partnerships with local organizations. WOSU@COSI maintains a digital media center and offices; OSU maintains a center of research as well as health & medicine laboratories staffed by medical residents; and Columbus Historical Society maintains offices and exhibit space. COSI also operates the largest outreach education program of any science museum in the United States through COSI in the Classroom, 21st Century Lab field trip experiences, international distance education Interactive Video Conferencing programs, and COSI On Wheels traveling outreach program. As well, COSI originated the Camp-In overnight program for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in 1972 – a concept that is now commonplace in museums nationwide.
