Did you know... since May 2016 thousands of people from all over the South Suburbs participated in PopUp SCIENCE? Neuroscience, physics, engineering, botany, astronomy, anatomy and social science are just some of the STEAM topics that families and individuals explored. All for free.
PopUp SCIENCE is the first program designed and executed by Homewood Science Center. We have created a platform to provide free community-based, hands-on STEAM learning opportunities, attracting people from across the South Suburbs, and connecting them with diverse topics in STEM.
No registration required. Drop in for a few minutes or a few hours!
All ages, from birth and beyond!

WHAT IS STEM EDUCATION?
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in five specific disciplines — Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
What separates STEM from the traditional science and math education is the blended learning environment and showing students how the scientific method and engineering design can be applied to everyday life. It teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real world applications of problem solving.
Homewood Science Center strives to connect STEM champions and celebrate their efforts. As relationships develop, possibilities will surface and create more STEM-related opportunities for South Suburban residents.
South Suburban STEM Network is now recognized as as a
STEM Learning Ecosystem!
