Quantum Leap is an Indiana Humanities initiative that encourages Hoosiers to explore and celebrate the spirit of possibility and problem-solving that occurs when we bridge the humanities with science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and medicine.
Quantum Leap includes a number of other events and partnerships with organizations all across the state. Here are additional opportunities to participate:
Indiana Humanities has added books related to the Quantum Leap thematic initiative to its free lending library for book clubs, called Novel Conversations. New titles include Hidden Figures, Lab Girl and When Breath Becomes Air, among others. Reserve your set today!
“Take the Leap” columns ran in BizVoice, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s bi-monthly publication during 2017. These bi-monthly columns highlight the voices and stories of business leaders who drive progress by creatively pairing STEM and humanities.
In partnership with the Harrison Center for the Arts, Indiana Humanities co-hosted an art exhibit and First Friday event featuring work by Quincy Owens and Luke Crawley. The two artists (Crawley is also a science and mathematics teacher) combine arts and science into their works. Art inspired by Frankenstein was also on display. You can view photos from the opening here.
