Following the great success of the fifth edition in 2016, the Office for Science and Technology at the Consulate General of France in Chicago organizes a sixth whole day for the discovery of science by students, in downtown Chicago, through hands-on activities.
The booths are run by our French and American scientific partners, in very different fields of science.
This event is designed for both American and French students from 5th to 10th grade and their teachers. As most of the scientists present will be French speakers, French-speaking audiences are welcome!
Classes will be divided into groups of 10 to 13 students. in order to visit each booth in an orderly fashion.
This event will take place on Monday May 1, 2017, from 9am to 3:30pm (one session in the morning and one in the afternoon), at the Student Center East – Illinois Room at the University of Illinois at Chicago (750 South Halsted Street, Chicago, IL 60607).
Up to 20 booths will be available, with hands-on activities of around 15 minutes each. We will organize your schedule so that every group of students will attend at least 6 booths (for a total duration of 2 to 2½ hours per group).
Our advice: plan to spend 3 hours on site, to allow a pleasant visit and a break in the morning/afternoon for your students!
Class registration is now open! To register, please complete the questionnaire available here!
