The Family Science Expo aims to get kids excited about science, technology, and engineering. With interactive displays and exhibits, the Science Expo is the perfect combination of education and family fun.

What happens at the Science Expo?

Our Family Science Expo gives kids an opportunity talk to real engineers and scientists and learn about the amazing things they do. Representatives from local science and technology organizations set up hands-on demonstrations and activities. Kids might get to build a bridge out of paper, learn about how concrete is made, or see light refracting through different prisms.

Recent exhibitors have included:

  • Civil Air Patrol, Illinois Wing
  • Structural Engineers Association of Illinois
  • Optical Society of Chicago
  • IEEE Women in Engineering
  • Chicago Area Robotics Group
  • Destination Imagination
