EiS 2023 poster

Everything is Science, Lexington’s city-wide science festival, returns for its fifth year with an exciting new theme: It’s About Time!  

What can seem like an intimidating topic is, in reality, quite relatable – from the moment we wake up in the morning, science is happening all around us – at every moment in time. Making science accessible in a fun and interactive way is essential in helping people feel more connected to science and the city of Lexington as a whole.  

Each year, a group of students and employees at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy and campus and community partners work together to show Lexington that science is all around us, not just in the research labs. Everything is Science is held at different locations throughout the city, with events happening Monday through Friday. The festival features presentations, demonstrations, and conversations in laid-back spaces, like local restaurants, pubs, and breweries. Speakers aim to bring an uncomplicated approach to topics that we may not initially consider science-related. 

EiS is accepting speaker submissions for the 2024 festival. Submit the speaker interest form to be considered or email about becoming a volunteer or speaker. 

Everything is Science: It’s About Time! will take place February 20-24, 2023, from 6-8 pm each day.

The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy continually ranks as a top-ten institution of pharmacy education in the nation, and research funding has more than doubled in the last decade.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
