Hello fellow science (STEAM) enthusiasts. It has been two years since the last in person Celebrate Science Indiana. The planning committee is working very hard to host a 2021 in person event in our usual location at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. We have reserved the Elements Financial Blue Ribbon Pavilion for Saturday, October 2, 2021. The event will begin at 9:30 am. and end at 5 pm. Over 20 interactive booths have already been programmed. It will be an exciting day for exploring various topics in biology, chemistry, physics, space science and ecology. The fairgrounds has a parking charge of $10 per vehicle this year, but entry into Celebrate Science Indiana is free. To avoid confusion, please note, the Brickworld event taking place at the same time in the adjoining Champions Pavilion does require an admission fee. It is our hope that you will be able to attend both of these great events.
While we are excited to be back, the committee is also aware that we are not completely out of the COVID-19 pandemic. In that regard, we are making every effort to follow current guidelines for maintaining social health. We will have hand sanitizing stations available, and there are adequate restrooms for frequent handwashing. The activity booths will have more space around them than in a normal year. Masks will be required for entry regardless of vaccination status and we are requesting that they remain on while attending the event. Activity leaders will also be wearing masks.
The committee looks forward to welcoming everyone to Celebrate Science Indiana. Please like us on Facebook and help us spread the word about the great day to be had at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 2, 2021.
Many thanks to our 2021 sponsors and exhibitors:
Robert Yost, Executive Director Celebrate Science Indiana
