What students had to say

Student letter

Fifth grade students from Washington School in Monticello, IL made the Naturally Illinois Expo part of their curriculum on Friday, April 17. Here's what they had to say about the Expo:

"I think that both kids and adults learned a lot from the Expo. I think that it was the perfect combination of fun activity and learning."

"I liked all the hands on stuff there was. Over all I had a really fun day."

"I had fun learning about history and how you can see it if you just dig deep enough."

For teachers 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. Also a great destination for Boys and Girls' Clubs, scout troops, and other youth organizations.
