The Center of Science and Industry (COSI) located in downtown Columbus Ohio, is a modern-built science center that inspires the scientists, dreamers, and innovators of tomorrow.
In a unique partnership, COSI and CCAPP work together to bring exciting and interesting science to the public through a variety of educational activites and experiences such as lectures, demonstrations, planetarium shows and media outlets. This partnership enriches the experience for those of all ages who desire a better understanding of science and provides the opportunity to meet and interact directly with OSU researchers.
Paul Sutter, cosmological research and community outreach coordinator for CCAPP has also been appointed the first Chief Scientist at COSI. "Proving that sometimes you can have the best of two possible worlds, both Ohio State and COSI created brand-new positions for Sutter that will allow him to captivate and innovate through scientific outreach...Sutter has gained a reputation for not just being able to translate science to the public, but doing it in such a way that is addictive."
In his spare time, Sutter is one of the world's leading experts on cosmic voids - the vast empty spaces between galaxies - and has devised innovative methods for using radio telescopes to probe deep into cosmic history, when the first stars and galaxies formed.
