Everything is Science 2022 Initial Announcement
Earth. Fire. Wind. Water. Heart. With their powers combined, the elements make up everything around us.
Everything is Science, Lexington’s annual city-wide festival, is back with a new theme: The Elements of Life. Each event will feature engaging demonstrations and presentations related to the five elements, with conversations on how earth, fire, wind, water, and heart each contribute to everyday life.
The festival, which is free and open to the public, will be held in various local restaurants, pubs, and breweries. The topics discussed aim to make science fun and engaging for audiences of all ages.
“Everything is Science has been growing every year, and this year’s events are going to be highly captivating,” said Michelle Pitts, a UK post-doctoral fellow. “We are excited to showcase how science is present in our daily routines, takes many different forms, and shapes all aspects of life on Earth.”
“I’m pleased we are once again bringing Everything is Science to the city of Lexington,” said Kip Guy, dean of the College of Pharmacy. “We have brilliant lecturers, researchers, and practitioners on UK’s campus. Our goal is to bring science to the community, spark interest in our work, and perhaps even inspire future scientists by opening a pathway for creative minds.”
The events will take place during the week of February 21-25, 2022. No registration is required.
