One of the bigger attractions I haven't gotten around to seeing in Columbus was the COSI center, which has a lot of nifty science-type exhibitions and fun games to play around with. But thanks to the student activity fee all students play, OSU sponsored a free night for OSU students to go, so I couldn't pass this one up! Of course, what's a visit to COSI without some pictures :P
