Illinois Science Council (“ISC”) is an independent 501c3 organization that engages, educates, and entertains the public about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in our everyday lives. Kasey Kahne Autograph Rookie 2004 Dodge Dealers Intrepid Action DiecastISC serves as the adult complement to student-focused science efforts, and the science & tech counterpart to the region’s arts & culture offerings by raising STEM understanding and appreciation.Kyosho 1 18 BMW MINI Cooper s Countryman Diecast model car

ISC explores a wide variety of topics with a fun, non-stuffy approach. We create engaging programs (aimed at adults and accessible to teens) such as:MTH OWEN CASH PAWN STARS SHOP OPPOSITE CORNER BUILDING BLINKING SIGN FOR LIONEL hands-on chemistry (Chemistry of… Beer, Chocolate, Whiskey, Coffee, Honey, etc.); panel discussions on science subjects in the news (Your Brain on Happiness, on Creativity, on Addiction, on Exercise, etc.); Märklin H0 3100 3er Locomotive Set Br 86 BR 03 BR 04 750 Years Berlin OVP SL70author talks (Lisa Randall, Mary Roach, Randall Munroe of XKCD); film screenings (“The Atom Smashers”), plus the Chicago Science Festival; and more.

Carl Sagan observed:

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent upon science and technology in which hardly anyone understands anything about science and technology.” Dale Earnhardt Jr 1 24 Elite 2000 Bud Olympic Mint Condition Rookie

ISC is certainly working to change that.
