Did you know the Expo is led entirely by volunteers and funded entirely through donations? We rely on our donors, sponsors, and volunteers.
Two ways you can help, right now:
Earth, Wind, & Fire 5K Run and 2.5K Walk
The 6th annual Earth, Wind, & Fire 5K Run and 2.5K Walk will kick off at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
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. See the Teacher/Group Info link for more information.
