On Saturday, February 20, 2016, IPFW's Institute for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Endeavor (IRSC) partnered with Science Central for the first IPFW Sponsorship Day. Admission to Science Central was free the entire day courtesy of IRSC. More than 20 faculty members and 30 students volunteered their time, giving hands-on demonstrations and sharing their research with the community.

As Shannon Bischoff, associate professor of linguistics and IRSC director, shared, “The IPFW Science Central Sponsorship Day is a great way for the university to partner with Science Central to engage the northeast Indiana community in science-related activities, broaden the community’s understanding of science, and foster a lifetime love of curiosity-driven inquiry as well as a way to learn more about their local university and the world-class research being done in their own back yard by their children, friends, and neighbors."

IPFW’s photographer, Jim Whitcraft, was also on hand to document the day. We include some of his photographs of College of Arts and Sciences faculty and students in action during the first IPFW Science Central Sponsorship Day.
