Welcome to COSI's Electrostatic Generator Stage (the Powerstation as its also known at points). The Electrostatic Generator is powered by 300,000 volts of electrostatic energy. Here you can learn about the effects of static electricity and if you volunteer, maybe see your own hair stand up. This scene is so iconic to COSI that it's imprinted on the COSI penny.
