WALK WALTON, a PopUp SCIENCE Fundraiser 

in partnership with

Homewood's Izaak Walton Preserve

and Irons Oaks Foundation 



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 STEM learning opportunities, attracting people from across the South Suburbs and connecting them with diverse topics in STEM.

WALK WALTON is a fall festival in the heart of the South Suburbs of Chicago sure to please people of all ages.

A benefit for Homewood Science Center's PopUp SCIENCE programming, 

WALK WALTON helped us raise roughly $9,000 in 2016. Thank you for your support!
