The Weekly Experiment
NIPR and Science Central are teaming up to present “The Weekly Experiment,” a short radio program that will air each Saturday on WBOI
(89.1 FM) during “Science Friday.” The program will be broadcast at about 2:03 p.m. Each week, Science Central Executive Director, Martin S. Fisher, will conduct a brief mini-experiment, explaining in a radio-friendly way, interesting scientific facts and theories. The Weekly Experiment is produced by WBOI Programming Director Katy Anderson.
“What better way to teach science to the citizens of northeast Indiana than a partnership between the region’s only science center, the people who know how to create fun science content, and the region’s only public radio station, the people who know how to produce and transmit community programming?” asked Martin.
“WBOI already has a commitment to science education. This new collaboration with Science Central expands that effort still further, and has the added bonus of being produced in our community for the benefit of local listeners” commented Peter Dominowski, NIPR President/General Manager.
