Elevate Science

Elevate awareness of Chicago science! Your support is vital to our programming efforts, allowing us to keep events free or low-cost, start new initiatives such as Science in the Parks, and reinvigorate legacy initiatives like Science and Cinema.

Elevate Science

With 27 programs in our previous fiscal year we have set out to reach new heights. With the support of science enthusiasts like you, we can expand our programming efforts and digital media library to reach more of Chicago and those internationally.

This is what our program attendees have to say about C2ST:

  • “I am excited to have found this, and look forward to more events!”
  • “Great balance between scientific accuracy and approachability.”
  • “Fascinating topic; friendly speaker with ability to convey complex material to people with non-scientific background.”


Over the past 11 years, C2ST has held over 230 programs, reached more than 22,000 program attendees, and has partnered with over 140 organizations from Chicago and beyond. We have also established an Auxiliary Board, Chicago Public Schools Educator Fellow, Artist in Residence, and an Inclusiveness in STEM Initiative to expand our audiences.

Your donation goes towards all the costs of running a program including recording, live streaming, and receptions among many others. Now, help us reach our goal of $3,000 to elevate science and we can continue the momentum that consistently pushes us past our limits.
