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!
