Final Countdown to Celebrate Science Indiana 2013


It’s the final countdown to an awesome weekend of science! Celebrate Science Indiana 2013 is this weekend, and we wanted to post the schedule of events and map of exhibitors.

Our first satellite event is on Saturday, September 7th from 10am to 4pm at the IPFW, Walb Union in Fort Wayne. The main event is on Sunday, September 8th from 10am to 5pm at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) in Indianapolis.
