We are only taking requests from OSU groups and School groups for shows between April 15 until May 31. We will only pencil in summer requests at this time. As the outreach arm of the Department of Astronomy, we are not a full-fledged or staffed science center. We do our best to meet all requests. We offer public shows based on staffing availability. The Planetarium at COSI is open for public programs.
