Join us June 27-28.
If science is your thing (think beakers, bats and blow torches) come to Central’s STEM Exploration June 27-28. Sponsored by: Alliant Energy
Our professors are the catalyst to your success, and you’ll see why as you spend one-on-one time with them. They’ll invite you to their labs (both indoor and outdoor) and are excited to get to know you. There is no cost to attend. NOTE: Please bring long pants, socks and tennis shoes for bat netting. Also bring along a flashlight if you have one.
