coronavirus dark 1200x800Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Due to health concerns associated with the Coronavirus and in cooperation with Gov. Eric Holcomb's stay-at-home order, Science Central has cancelled all programs, events and outreaches through Tuesday, April 21st.  Science Central will be closed to the public until further notice.

We did not make this decision easily. As a science-based, educational institution, the management team feels this action is in the best interest of our visitors, staff and volunteers. It is the responsibility of everyone to help reduce the spread of the virus.

If you were scheduled for any upcoming programs, we will contact you in a separate communication, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to re-opening soon!

Science Fair Recognition Day!

Many great scientists get their start by participating in their school's Science Fair. Whether Science Fair participants win or lose really doesn't matter. What matters is that they've learned something, and that they have piqued a long-term interest in science!

Every year in March, Science Central celebrates Science Fair Recognition Day. We honor two student projects from our local schools, inviting the students to share their projects with Science Central visitors. These projects didn't advance on to regional competition, but they exemplify the hard work and learning that comes about from Science Fair participation.
