Science in the City Annual Gala 2018

 

You are invited to celebrate 10 years of Science in the City with the Chicago Council on Science and Technology at mHUB. Join us for a night of activities where science community and industry leaders come together to support our ongoing efforts in providing science education to the city of Chicago. We will serve drinks and hors-d'oeuvres and guests will be able to tour mHUB’s innovative manufacturing facility and learn more about 3D printing. This fundraiser will allow C2ST’s to continue to provide free and low-cost events throughout the city. Your support is critical to our mission.

 

The evening includes a cocktail reception with heavy hors-d'oeuvres, silent auction and raffle, and a chance to mingle with business and scientific leaders and young professionals.


 

Chicago Council on Science and Technology will also be honoring two individuals with an “Advancing the Public Understanding of Science & Technology Award" by awarding a “Lifetime Achievement Award” as well as a “Young Professional Award.” C2ST created this award in 2012 to honor individuals who share in the passion and mission of the organization—to increase the awareness of the great R&D taking place in our region.
 



The event will be hosted by Aaron Freeman, Artist in Residence at C2ST. Freeman is a writer/producer, science commentator, and funnyman. The former host of both NPR's weekly talk show Metropolis and WTTW's Chicago Tomorrow, a weekly science-and-health half-hour magazine.
