Our WOSU@COSI Studio and Event Space was home to TedxYouth@Columbus this past Saturday where both the audience and presenters were made up of bright young minds from throughout the central Ohio community. The theme was “Surge Ahead” and the guest speakers offered their peers advice on how to break boundaries, pursue their dreams, and develop their own ideas that will inspire the world.
