Over 300 Chicago Public Schools students whose science projects were selected from school fairs and subsequent regional fairs now come to the Museum of Science and Industry for this weekend's 63rd annual citywide science fair. See what some of our city's brightest young minds have investigated in fields ranging from aerospace to zoology.
Projects will be open for public viewing by Museum guests on Friday from 1:00 to 3:15 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon. The weekend culminates Sunday afternoon with the final award assembly. Outstanding projects honored at this fair will advance to the Illinois Junior Academy of Sciences state science fair on May 3 and 4. Four outstanding projects will be chosen to participate at the International Science and Engineering Fair, May 12-17 in Phoenix, Ariz.
This event is made possible by generosity from around the Chicagoland area. More than 300 scientists, engineers and health care professionals volunteer their time to judge projects, many of them having been judges for over 30 years. CPS science teachers and other employees coach and help refine their students' projects, which are done in and outside of school. Corporate sponsors ComEd, Motorola Solutions Foundation, BP America Inc., and Takeda Global Research & Development Center, Inc., as well as many smaller private donors, help to fund workshops, programs, scholarships and awards for these young scientists.
Admission to the CPS Science Fair is included with general Museum admission.
