Everything is Science citywide festival returns

The fifth Everything Is Science festival will take place Feb. 20-24, 2023, at various venues across Lexington.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 16, 2022) — Everything is Science, Lexington’s citywide science festival, returns for its fifth year with an exciting new theme: It’s About Time!  

What can seem like an intimidating topic is, in reality, quite relatable — from the moment we wake up in the morning, science is happening all around us — at every moment in time. Making science accessible in a fun and interactive way is essential in helping people feel more connected to science and the city of Lexington as a whole.  

Each year, a group of students and employees at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy, along with other campus and community partners, work together to show Lexington that science is all around us, not just in the research labs. Everything is Science is held at different locations throughout the city, with events happening Monday through Friday. The festival features presentations, demonstrations and conversations in laid-back spaces, like local restaurants, pubs and breweries. Speakers aim to bring an uncomplicated approach to topics that we may not initially consider science-related. 

EiS is still accepting speaker submissions for the 2023 festival. If you are interested in becoming a speaker, visit the festival page to learn more. The deadline to submit the speaker interest form is Dec. 31, 2022. Email eis@uky.edu with any questions about becoming a volunteer or speaker. 

Everything is Science: It’s About Time! will take place Feb. 20-24, 2023, between 6-8 p.m. each day.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $501 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
