SCIENCE CENTRAL: MARVELOUS MOLECULES

Hours: Monday & Tuesday – Closed , Wednesday through Friday – 10 am – 4 pm, Saturday – 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday – 12- 5 pm
Amoebas, crabs, willow trees, elephants, whales and people all look different on the outside, but inside; billions and billions of molecules interact in similar ways to carry out common life functions-moving, sensing, defending and reproducing. Likewise, the variety of different molecules found in living things is vast, but these molecules are all based on combinations of only 25 different atoms. In Marvelous Molecules: The Secret of Life, a series of exhibit stations, computer interactives, and hands-on models, invite visitors to explore how and why these different interactions happen by breaking life down into smaller and smaller parts and revealing the similarities and differences among life-forms in this world. The exhibition was developed by the New York Hall of Science.
Admission: Adults & Kids (3-12) – $8, Seniors (65+) – $7, Kids (2 & under) – FREE

Our Story Project

NEIRP  LOGO GOOD

Your story is an invaluable part of our story!

The Our Story Project aims to discover who we are as a region and use that information to create a compelling story to collectively market Northeast Indiana. Aligning our marketing messages will allow organizations to reinforce key themes; establish a strong reputation for the region; and make Northeast Indiana economically competitive on a global scale.

Consultants Scott Ochander and Tyler Borders are leading the project. They are using their proprietary consensus-building process so that everyone will have the opportunity to weigh in and affect the outcome.

Northeast Indiana residents are invited to participate in workshops that will be held across all 10 counties this fall. In addition, an online interactive tool will be developed to allow the general public to weigh in on the process.

The idea for the Our Story Project originated from last year’s regional exchange trip to Cincinnati. Over 50 Northeast Indiana leaders visited Cincinnati to learn from their best practices, and one of the top three takeaways from the trip was developing a master narrative similar to Cincinnati’s efforts.

Read the news release and be sure to visit this page for the latest updates as the Our Story Project progresses.

Regional Workshops

Collectively, the region will put in hundreds of hours to shape our story and who we want to be. By offering only three hours of your own time, you have the opportunity to affect the future of Northeast Indiana. At the end of the Our Story Project, this data will be used by economic developers, chambers and CVBs from across our 10 counties to better market our region, which means increased growth and prosperity for residents across Northeast Indiana.

Workshops will be conducted in two phases. The first phase of workshops will focus on discovering the region’s personality, while the second phase of workshops will center on how we talk about the region. The public is invited to attend any phase one and/or phase two workshop. (You can choose to attend a phase two workshop without attending a phase one workshop.)
