This three-day, hands-on learning experience will take you outdoors, as well as into the laboratory, as you explore the world through the eyes of a scientist!

Day one, you'll spend on Manchester's campus, where you'll explore the Eel River ecosystem, examine the mysteries of chemistry, and learn how human bodies function.

On days two and three, you'll visit the Koinonia Biological Field Station, 12 miles north of Manchester University. There, you're explore the sport and science of fishing in Lake Larrew with a fisheries biologist, and learn about rocketry, aerospace and engineering through designing, building and launching bottle rockets. You'll learn, too, about birds and how they're captured and banded for scientific research.

The annual 4th of July Celebration and Fireworks Display hosted by Manchester University is a treat for North Manchester and the Wabash County community. Come early for the patriotic celebration and stay for the fireworks!

The evening kicks off at 7 p.m. with music by JP Freeman’s 4th and Walnut cover band, presenting The Eel River Rambler Show with a variety of musicians, genres and instruments sure to please the whole family.

Around 8 p.m., University President Dave McFadden provides the welcome and introduces Rodney Funk, a U.S. Navy veteran who received the Cuban Expeditionary medal for his involvement in the Cuban blockade, who will speak about what it means to be a veteran. After a patriotic performance by the Manchester Civic Band conducted by Reggie Smith, MU junior Tiana Maclin will perform the national anthem before the fireworks show.

Free offerings include cornhole, kites, chalk drawing and face painting. The Rotary Club of North Manchester will sell $1 hot dogs, popcorn, water and pop to raise funds for community service programs.

North Manchester firefighters will light up the sky at 10 p.m. on the east end of the MU campus. The soccer field bleachers are perfect for viewing the fireworks, but arrive early, because they fill up quickly.

The rain date is Sunday, July 5, same time and place.
