Naturally Illinois Expo - Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, 2015

The 2015 Naturally Illinois Expo will be held Friday, April 17 & Saturday, April 18

For educators across the region, Naturally Illinois has become a staple of the year's science curriculum. That's because Institute scientists do more than merely inform - they engage and excite students of all ages. We also encourage Boys and Girls'/Clubs, scout troops, and other youth organizations to attend, especially on Saturday when it is less crowded.

The Naturally Illinois Expo is a great field trip destination!

I would like to thank you for a terrific expo. We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits. I appreciated the hands-on approach and the interaction of your scientists with the students. The field book was wonderful. It kept all of my students focused. We look forward to this event next year. – J. L., an elementary school teacher

Just wanted to let you know I was able to participate in the Expo today with my daughter's 3rd grade class, and it was wonderful! Quite educational, and the kids loved the stamped field books. – S. F., a parent
