From May 1-4, COSI (The Center of Science and Industry) hosted their annual Science Festival in Columbus. At this event, hundreds of individuals and organizations from across the state displayed their work to the community. Included in this representation is a number of affiliated labs and staff within Ohio State's Psychology Department.
Thank you to these members for representing OSU well and for sharing their research with the public in an exciting and innovative way!
