Field Trips

Jr. Science Cafés

Students can meet STEM professionals and talk with them about their career paths and their personal journeys into science.

Have you ever wondered what it's really like to be a scientist? 

During these 30-minute conversations, students will challenge their own scientific curiosity and uncover the lives of scientists and engineers through dynamic demonstrations and hands-on activities. Each session is an exciting opportunity for your students to interact with professionals and learn about cutting-edge research from experts.

There is no additional charge for these sessions, but they must be reserved. Please contact us at (773) 684-1414 or use our online Field Trip Reservation form to include a Jr. Science Café session with your field trip. Capacity is 35 students. This program is best for students in grades 5 through 12.
