Every October, we jam-pack NIU's Convocation Center with creepy, crawly, slimy, sciency fun for the whole family! This gigantic festival celebrates the fun behind Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math!
Students in grades 4 and up can sign up for hands-on science sessions that make learning exciting by exploring everything from the inside of household items like vacuum cleaners to the physics of roller coasters. Parents are welcome to attend the classes and join the fun.
Adults can join STEM Outreach and STEM experts for discussions on the latest research and groundbreaking discoveries. These casual, fun conversations take place at local restaurants throughout the area. Eat, drink, and feed your mind!
