Opposites Attract at UK’s Everything is Science Festival

Everything is Science
Everything is Science: Opposites Attract is a citywide science festival taking place at local bars and restaurants March 4-8.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2019) – Science is all around us — pushing, pulling, exerting opposing forces that keep the universe in balance. Join the University of Kentucky and featured guest speakers from around the region for 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.
