Instead of spring cleaning, COSI is taking care of business in the fall! After COSI's annual maintenance, the science center will celebrate with a Community Open House on Sept. 18.

Round up the family and visit COSI between 10 a.m.-7 p.m. to enjoy exhibits, shows and 3D films. COSI's current film is 'Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D,' which give viewers a surfing experience. The center boasts an impressive list of exciting exhibits including Adventure, Space and Lily Pad. The exhibits provide hands-on interaction and learning for kids. The Community Open House also promotes back to school fun with resources and information for parents and children.

COSI is located Downtown Columbus near Genoa Park. Parking during the Community Open House is a reduced rate of $2 a car. Check out cosi.org for more information about the exhibits and activities.
