Join us for Science, Craft Brews, and Networking!

About this Event

Last year’s Fall Social was one of our best yet, and while it’s a shame we can’t get together in person this year, there’s no reason we shouldn’t try and meet up via the ingenious series of tubes known as the “internet” (thanks Al Gore!).

So, with Fall right around the corner, we are inviting YOU (and anyone else hunkering down in your apartment/house/doomsday bunker) to join us for the 4th Annual Fall Social!

Even though this will be a virtual event, we still have a night full of festivities planned for the STEM crowd! This will be a great opportunity for Chicago scientists, builders, thinkers, and dreamers to get together and talk shop, to learn about new opportunities in the area, and to kick back and relax in a new (virtual) environment.

This year’s social will feature performances from our Artist In Residence, Dxtr Spits, speakers from WorldChicago, break-out networking sessions, and more! Plus, C2ST will be delivering bottles of beer from Revolution Brewing and Grunsfeld Lager (named after John Grunsfeld, former astronaut and director of NASA and native of Highland Park) from Ravinia Brewery!

Grab your ticket today!
