COSI is now open!

Superhero Science

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nah, it’s super-science! Backed by a team of comic book heroes, you’ll use science to bring “impossible” super powers to life! Explore “levitation” by manipulating air pressure, explore potential and kinetic energy, use the states of matter to create flight, and learn the ingredients of a cloud by making real clouds right in the classroom! Pass Hero Training and you’ll get a chance to touch COSI’s famous Electrostatic Generator to see (and feel!) the shocking power of electricity at work! You can keep the city safe with science on your side!
