Event description

Description


Illinois Science Council invites you to the third annual Chicago Science Festival — a celebration of the wow-inspiring, mind-expanding, human-benefitting awesomeness that is STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) in the Chicago area.

On Saturday, May 20, come for a full day of exciting science talks and interactive demonstrations for people like you! The Fest will feature hourly talks by Chicago-area scientists including: the science of marijuana, the present and future of prosthetics, why dirt is good for you (and your microbiome), how sleep affects memory, your brain's "connectome," and much more! Between talks, you can visit demonstration tables where you can view the first ever live demonstration of the Oleo Sponge, learn about solar panels, experience Virtual Reality, and taste edible insects. You can even test-drive some of today’s hottest electric cars outside in the Merchandise Mart driveway!

Check out the 2017 ScienceFest website for details on the speakers and demos. New details are being added all the time!

Big thanks to our sponsors who make the Chicago Science Fest possible!
