It’s a con within a con! March for Science Indianapolis is partnering with Starbase Indy to create the “United Federation of Science.” The event will be a gathering of March for Science organizers from across the country with its own room within the Starbase Indy convention space. United Federation of Science activities include:
- Panel presentations on Science and Public Policy, Visionary Star Trek, and Science’s Role in Society.
- Robot Battles!
- "Ask a Scientist" Mixer
- Internal organizational meetings
The event will end with the presentation of STEM grants by March for Science Indianapolis to Indianapolis-area educators. March for Science Indianapolis is awarding grants to local teachers who submit a creative, engaging STEM curriculum that can be replicated in classrooms across the state.
The partnership is a natural fit given Gene Roddenberry’s vision of a future where science works together for the benefit of all.
