FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Science Central hosted Purdue University Fort Wayne for their annual sponsorship day.

Visitors got free admission all day to Science Central.

They got a chance to meet professors and students from Purdue University Fort Wayne's Institute for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Endeavors.

More than 50 faculty, administrators, students, and athletes gave hands-on demonstrations.

"Visitors are able to try an experiment, look through a microscope, perform some sort of chemistry activity,” Executive Director Martin Fisher said.

This is the 5th year of the event.

"It is an important component of Purdue University Fort Wayne's mission, and that is to bridge with the community in a very engaged way. This is one way we do it,” Tina Gasnarez, Program Assistant for Purdue University Fort Wayne, said.
