BLAST: COSI’s Big Science Bash
Columbus’ Sole Science Sneaker Ball

Saturday, September 30, 2023
Save the date for COSI’s signature fundraiser, BLAST, pumped-up with a whole new style! In true COSI fashion, don cocktail attire with your best pair of high-tops, formal wear with your fanciest kicks, or evening apparel with your trendiest trainers! What better way to dance to live music and stroll through COSI while savoring culinary delights, sampling creative cocktails, enjoying performances, and exclusive experiences, always with interactive science fun! Help raise critical funds for COSI programs that support science literacy and broad access to STEM learning for all. See you there!
