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 RARE DSM 1938 DELAGE D8-120 AERO COUPE BY POURTOUT ONE OFF TWO-TONEISC 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 Remember Ferrari 250 GTO Trophée D'Auvergne - Charade 1963 4757 n amr bbr

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 Renault Fregate (2pcs) diecast 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 REVOLUTION MODELS HOLDEN HSV VT VX COMMODORE CLUBSPORT GREEN AWESOME CARauthor talks (Lisa Randall, Mary Roach, Randall Munroe of XKCD); film screenings (“The Atom Smashers”), plus the Chicago Science Festival; and more.
