C2ST achieves its mission by hosting relevant, independent, and credible public STEM programs across all scientific fields at locations throughout Chicagoland. With nine out of ten program attendees’ expectations fulfilled, our supporters agree that C2ST is accomplishing its mission of increasing the public’s understanding of science and technology.
Check out below what programs we have planned and discover what we’ve hosted in the past.
The following testimonial from a C2ST supporter demonstrates the scope of our programming:
“A few years ago you hosted a talk called “The Science of Addiction”…I am a mother of a son who has been battling heroin addiction (substance abuse disorder)…As a person who taught and believed in science, I was frustrated going to family meetings where I was told repeatedly we were powerless. Then I attended the lecture hosted by C2ST and asked the question of what we could do to help support their research…Thank you so much! This lecture gave me direction and helped me feel like I had a purpose.”

U.S. high-school students perform less well in science and math than students in other economically advanced countries do. Dr. Samuel Silverstein, John C. Dalton Professor of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics in the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, created and continues to direct a nationally recognized Summer Work Experience for Professional Teachers (SWEPT) that utilizes the research laboratory experience at a major research university to provide experiences for New York City teachers that ultimately enhances their ability to teach science to their students.
