On Saturday, October 6, the Notre Dame College of Science was well-represented at the second annual Celebrate Science Indiana (CSI). CSI was a public event held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis intended to demonstrate the importance of studying science and the joy of discovery, the economic value of science, and its significance to society.

The event provided an opportunity for individuals to conduct hands-on activities, interact with scientists, explore opportunities, and ask questions about educational and professional possibilities in STEM areas.

Staff and students from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA), Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the Notre Dame QuarkNet Center attended the event. Photos from this event are on JINA's Facebook page.
