STEERING COMMITTEE

STEERING COMMITTEE

Celebrate Science Indiana is a fun, free, family event for Indiana. Celebrate Science Indiana will offer many interactive opportunities for individuals with an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to learn more about how these areas are being applied by business and industry throughout Indiana and why it is important for students to consider pursuing a career in one of these disciplines. This event is the culmination of hard work by an organizing committee whose members are currently working in or are in some way involved with a STEM discipline.
