Together, we’ve spent a decade enhancing the public’s understanding and appreciation of science and technology and their impact on society.
In establishing the Chicago Council on Science and Technology, the founders sought to bring together Chicago’s scientific leaders – academic, corporate, government, museums, universities and national laboratories — to provide a forum for the discussion of current issues of scientific interest. We have discussed many STEM topics including: stem cell research, NASA’s future, cyber security, and nuclear energy. C2ST even brought a Noble Laureate to the public for Street Corner Science.
In 10 years, C2ST has:
– Reached over 20,000 people in various Chicagoland venues including museums, incubators, Chicago Public Schools, local libraries and pubs.
– Partnered with the CPS science department, allowing teachers to receive CPDU credits for attending some of our programs.
– Established an Artist In Residence and an Educator Fellow to help us reach new audiences.
– Reached a global audience! YouTube views of our program videos have been seen in 190 countries.
Celebrate this 10th anniversary with us, and ensure this positive impact on the future of Chicagoland continues to grow for the next 10 years. You can help us get the next decade of public science outreach off to a strong start by making a gift today.
