The Graz’ Children’s Museum FRida & freD and the Natural History Museum of Universalmuseum Joanneum have jointly created the CoSA – Center of Science Activities, a science centre that stands for easily accessible, interactive and entertaining education for teenagers, on technology and science.

Over almost 1,000 sq. metres on the first floor of the Natural History Museum in the Joanneum Quarter, the focus is on participation. Each area of knowledge is conveyed and designed in different ways, ranging from a ‘Cabinet of Knowledge’ about medical research, to the possibility of assuming the role of ‘Mobility Developer’. In ‘Energy and Resources’, sustainability is treated in a playful manner. A journey into the unknown of ‘Space and Deep Ocean’ stimulates visions and dreams; the ‘Maker Space’ is on offer to carry out one’s own ideas and "Science Shows" offer spectacular experiments. Over 250 sq. metres, augmented reality, at ‘AR Story-telling: Science Stories – Experience Knowledge’, shows a completely new approach to scientific and technical themes. Young programmers can apply and pass on their knowledge in the ‘Community Area’. A ‘Workshop Space’ makes it possible with guidance to solve scientific and technical tasks. The historical show mine turns into an ‘Escape Room’, in which past, present and future resources play a role.
