Catalyst, COSI’s Celebration of Inspiration, is an annual luncheon event unlike any other, featuring elements of COSI’s live shows, hands-on activities, and exciting demonstrations as the backdrop to a program that will highlight COSI’s mission to inspire interest in science and encourage people to want to learn more about their world.

For one special day each year, COSI pays tribute to its many catalysts: our vital corporate and community supporters whose contributions have helped fuel COSI’s growth as a world-class Center of Science, serving nearly one million people annually with informal education experiences that bring science to vibrant life. Jam-packed with science cart activities, tabletop science, and hands-on demonstrations, Catalyst gives COSI supporters the chance to experience for themselves COSI’s unique brand of learning. Dynamic, FUN, and interactive — Catalyst is anything but boring!

Thank you to all those who attended our 2014 Catalyst luncheon. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did! To view photos from the 2014 event, click here.
