Lunch with a IPFW Scientist

Science Central is host to  Lunch with an IPFW Scientist.  It is an educational and fun series of Brown Bag lunch sessions held on the second Saturday of the month, from January through May, featuring professors from Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.


This series is designed to provide IPFW professors the opportunity to present their specialty topics in a fun and casual way, nurturing in both the young and the most seasoned participants a budding interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).


Family members, ages 8 and up, get up-close and personal with each scientist and discover how various scientific processes work.


Following the presentation and hands-on activities, participants will enjoy their own Brown Bag lunch with the featured scientist. In the relaxed atmosphere of eating together, questions about the specialty are asked and answered.
