Science Is 'Spooktacular' for Girls at IMSA

Girls in grades 4-5 from throughout the Aurora area learned that science is not so scary during the Science Spooktacular held at IMSA.

The event featured more than 50 hands-on science demonstrations and exhibitors from organizations including the DuPage Children's Museum, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, Loyola University Medical Center, Microsoft Corporation, Argonne National Laboratory, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and more. 

A collaborative project of the Aurora and Naperville branches of AAUW (American Association of University Women) and Northern Illinois University, the story Spooktacular Event Shakes Up Girls' Interest in Science at IMSA and photos from the event are featured in the Beacon-News.
