Each May from 2015 to 2019, the Chicago Science Fest, produced by the nonprofit IL Science Council, drew hundreds of science-curious adults and students to the Merchandise Mart for Chicago’s only major science event of its kind. After a hiatus for COVID-19, we’re excited to be back again – LIVE – on Saturday, June 4, 2022. We’ll be at a new venue, mHUB Product Development Incubator, with great science speakers, demos, and tours of this new space.
The Chicago Science Festival features awe-inspiring talks by Chicago-area researchers and mind-blowing demos from local universities and business on the Saturday Science Expo day. Sometimes Science Fest goes beyond the Expo day to include “Science for Adults” workshops (such as the Chemistry of Beer and Chemistry of Bread), panel discussions on current events in science, and science/art exhibit featuring art created by local scientists.
