Festival Description

Chicago Science Fest

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

The main day of the 2019 Chicago Science Fest will take place on  Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the 1871 Tech Incubator and MATTER Chicago healthcare incubator at the Chicago Merchandise Mart. There will be speakers on a wide variety of science and technology topics from area museums, national laboratories, and universities, and tons of great hands-on demos.  Additional events will take place in other venues around the City in the weeks before and after, such as Chemistry of Beer at a brewery, a tour of a chromatography laboratory, and more.

For details and tickets visit  ChicagoScienceFest.org  All events require registration/tickets.  Talks are generally appropriate for adults and students 14+ and some events are exclusively 21+.
