Celebrate Science Indiana Will be held on Saturday, October 6 – Save the Date

As I looked out the window this morning, everything looked so green and beautiful. Our tulips are blooming and I can hear the birds singing. Spring is finally here so it’s time to begin planning for Celebrate Science Indiana 2018.

The organizing committee would like to take this opportunity to invite you, your family, and friends to Celebrate Science Indiana 2018. Please mark October 6th on your calendar as an important family friendly day for an outing to the Elements Financial Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Plan to spend the day with college students, faculty, teachers, industry scientists, and museum experts who are eager to share their joy and excitement about science, technology, engineering, math and other fields of science with everyone in Indiana.

Celebrate Science Indiana is a free public, interactive event that has been welcoming 4,000 guests each year since 2011. We take pride in seeing our guest’s faces as they explore the chemistry of artworks, learn about the human body, investigate computer science, peer into the structure of plant cells, engage with scientists, and have fun with one another over the course of the day.

Be sure to receive a free ticket when you enter which will be placed into a bin for hourly Celebrate Science Indiana T-shirt giveaways.
