LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 28, 2019) – Science is all around us — pushing, pulling, exerting opposing forces that keep the universe in balance. The University of Kentucky and featured guest speakers from around the region are gathering once again to take a weeklong look at practical science in casual settings during this year’s Everything is Science (EiS) Festival: Opposites Attract.
Everything is Science: Opposites Attract is a week of paired presentations, lectures and demonstrations that take a closer look at the yin and yang of science. Taking place March 4-8 at participating local restaurants and bars, the festival aims to demonstrate how science is happening all around us and not just in research labs.
On this episode of Behind the Blue, Vincent Venditto, an Assistant Professor in the UK College of Pharmacy, and second year Pharmacy student Jarrod Cremeans talk about the development of the festival, what it means to bring these discussions into such casual settings, and how attendees can get a no-pressure introduction to the everyday science that is happening all around them.
