Every great leap forward starts with a burst of creativity. Someone sees the world as it is, dreams of what it could be, and then works to make the dream a reality. This is future telling, something that writers, innovators and STEM experts do every day to imagine and create a better world. Join us at NIU to visit labs, experience hands-on STEM activities and use what you've learned to create your own sci fi stories. Throughout the week, you'll get to pick the brains of STEM and writing experts in small group sessions. You'll also get to meet best-selling authors and get their feedback on your ideas. Sign up for an out-of-this-world writing experience!
