Agape Werks is a community based organization committed to academic enrichment with a special emphasis on exposing the youth of Chicago to the opportunities that are possible if they investigate science, technology, engineering and math topics. Firmly rooted in the spirit of inclusion, Agape Werks delivers programs in areas of greatest need, but leaves participation open to all interested youth. Agape Werks formed the Chicago Knights Robotics (a 4-H SPIN Club) as a community of youth interested in exploring robotics and related activities for competition and for fun. Youth engaged in Chicago Knights Robotics represents the full diversity of Chicago. They participate in several official competitions, host, organize, and present training workshops, robotics events, and outreach events. They started LevelUP, a youth makerspace in Ford City Mall, to provide youth a year-round space to MAKE to Learn and LEARN to Make.
The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI), the largest science center in the Western Hemisphere, is home to more than 35,000 artifacts and nearly 14 acres of hands-on experiences designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity. Since opening their doors in 1933, they’ve welcomed more than 175 million guests from around the world. Their mission, to inspire the inventive genius in everyone by presenting captivating and compelling experiences that are real and educational, is realized through world-class exhibits such as: Science Storms, the newest permanent exhibit revealing the science behind some of nature’s most powerful phenomena; YOU! The Experience, an exhibit that lets you explore what it means to live a vital, healthy life in the 21st century; and the U-505 Submarine, the only German U-boat in the United States.
Even bigger than their mission is their vision, which is to inspire and motivate children to achieve their full potential in the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine. In addition to their fun and interactive exhibits, the Museum’s Center for the Advancement of Science Education (CASE) is continually developing and facilitating student learning labs, after-school science clubs, teen volunteer programs, teacher development classes and community outreach—all ways in which MSI makes science come alive for children and adults of all ages.
