Learn about 'The Elements of Life' at Everything is Science

Aspects of science and research touch our lives every day, but all too often as adults we forget the sense of wonder and interest that we may have had in science when we were children. Everything is Science, Lexington’s free community science festival aims to bring some of that back into our lives. Dr. Greg gets a preview of the week-long city-wide science festival from UK College of Pharmacy PHD candidate Lauren Weaver, one of the event's organizers.

The 2022 festival will run from Feb. 21-25 and features an overall theme of “The Elements of Life,”
with five nights of talks from experts and enthusiasts on topics ranging from water access and sustainability, to imaging the heart, to the physics of music. Talks are short, running just 20-25 minutes with no slides, structured for anyone to understand,
and questions for speakers are highly encouraged.

EiS is run out of the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy and has branched out in recent years to encompass more than just the usual white-coat science, aiming to include language, literature, music, and more. Speakers from the University of Kentucky, Transylvania University, Eastern Kentucky University, and numerous local businesses have
contributed, and this year will also feature several UK students.

All events will take place from 6-9 p.m. each night, food options will be available, and events are open to all ages, but targeted toward adults.
