Destination Chicago Recap

Scientists for Tomorrow (SfT) would like to thank everyone who participated at the Destination Chicago Festival. More than 400 people came to the festival held at the DePaul Center. There were raffles, art activities and workshops provided by informal science education venues. The Scientists for Tomorrow, 3,2,1 Go!!!  Balloon Powered Kart  workshop had more than 40 participants per session. SfT also gave the parents and teens the option of soldering and making name plates out of copper.

Thank you to SfT’s community partners who came to the event. It was great to see many of the coordinators and families from Richard Edwards Elementary,  Rosario Castellanos Elementary, Maria Saucedo Scholastic Academy, Mount Vernon Elementary School and John C. Burroughs Elementary School participate at Destination Chicago. We hope to see many of you participate in future events.
