Join us for Science Fest on Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Indiana University Bloomington campus as we prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime event: the total solar eclipse that will move through Indiana on Monday, April 8, 2024.
The annual Science Fest is on hiatus in fall 2023—being held in the spring instead.
Our very stellar Science Fest on April 6, 2024, will present visitors with an opportunity to learn about the impact solar eclipses have on all life, the science behind them, and how to safely enjoy a most unusual day. Help us celebrate this astronomical event. Fun for all ages!
The last time Indiana University Bloomington was in the path of totality for a solar eclipse was August 7, 1869. The next chance to witness a total solar eclipse from campus after the upcoming April 2024 event will be in 2153.
Visit the IU Science Fest website to stay abreast of the cosmic activities and festivities in April 2024.
