About this event

**Proof of full vaccination with ID is required for attendance. All current public health protocols will be followed at the event.**

Science definitely deserves a celebration now (although it always has), so you are invited to join ISC for our 10th Science Cocktail Party to celebrate science and Chicago's scientific community.

There will be smart people and interesting people and beautiful people (often the same people), delicious food, beer, wine and our signature science-y cocktail, raffle prizes, plus very cool hands-on science experiments. It's all in the name of science and fun!

Special THANKS our beer sponsor, Metropolitan Brewing, and our dessert sponsor, Blommer Chocolate. If your company is interested in sponsorship, contact Monica at mmetzler@IllinoisScience.org.

Organizer Illinois Science Council

Organizer of Science Cocktail Party 2021

Illinois Science Council ("ISC") is an independent 501c3 nonprofit with a mission to engage, educate, and entertain the adult public about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics. We showcase the scientists and research of the Chicago-area institutions and companies that make Chicago our nation's true "City of Science." ISC serves as the science & tech complement to the region's arts & culture offerings, and the adult complement to student-focused programs, by raising understanding and appreciation of STEM subjects.

Carl Sagan also observed, "We live in a society that is exquisitely dependent upon science and technology in which hardly anyone understands anything about science and technology."  ISC is certainly working to change that!

ISC explores all areas of science and technology and we do so with a fun, non-stuffy approach. We don't care what's been forgotten since school (or never learned in the first place). It's simply about continuing to exercise our inexhaustible human sense of curiosity. We create free and low-cost programs open to the public (aimed at adults and accessible to teens). ISC's engaging programs include author talks (Mary Roach, James Hamblin, Lisa Randall, Randall Munroe, Michio Kaku...), film screenings ("The Believers," "The Atom Smashers," "I Believe in Dinosaurs"), topical talks (Science of Cooking, Your Brain on Happiness, The Brain on Addiction, Science of the Internet, Human Genome & Consumer Genetic Tests...), and experiential hands-on chemistry (Chemistry of... Beer, Chocolate, Whiskey, Coffee, Honey, Bread...), and more.
