Last week, COSI celebrated the opening of our new Teen Tech Studio during the Surge Ignite event. Our Surge partners (WOSU, Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Wexner Center) each featured activities in their teen spaces and/or at COSI. Check out these pictures from the Ignite event.
COSI is just 2 days away from the opening of our new Teen Tech Studio!!! Things are still a little bit messy, but check out these "behind the scenes" pictures.

COSI's T&I Specialist, Ryan Westhoven, recently built our first "moppy player". What's a moppy player? It's a series of 3 1/2 floppy computer drives (8, in this case) programmed and controlled through the use of an Arduino controller.
