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. 1 43 EBBRO 45340 MERCEDES BENZ AMG SLS GT3 2015 SUPERGT GT300 SUZUKA GAINERISC 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.1 43 EBBRO EPSON NSX SuperGT'05 No.32(Late Version)

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:1 43 Ebbro Nissan Nismo GT-R LM 2000 car JGTC 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.); 1 43 Ebbro TOYOTA CELICA 1600 GT 1970 (WHITE)author 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.” 1 43 ESVAL Resin Model Delahaye 135M Guillore bluee 1950

ISC is certainly working to change that.
