Elevate Science

Elevate awareness of Chicago science! Your support is vital to our programming efforts, allowing us to keep events free or low-cost, start new initiatives such as Science in the Parks, and reinvigorate legacy initiatives like Science and Cinema.

Elevate Science

With 32 programs in our previous fiscal year, our most ever, we have set out to reach new heights. With the support of science enthusiasts like you, we can expand our programming efforts and digital media library to reach more of Chicago and those internationally.

This is what our program attendees have to say about C2ST:

  • “This [C2ST] is one of the places I look for to learn something new”
  • “I had never heard of C2ST until I received this invitation – great stuff, I am glad to know that C2ST exists.”
  • “Always informative and excellent presentations. Thank you.”


In just 10 years, C2ST has held over 210 programs, reached more than 21,000 program attendees, and has partnered with over 130 organizations from Chicago and beyond. We have also established an Auxiliary Board, Chicago Public Schools Educator Fellow, and Artist in Residence to expand into new audiences.

Your donation goes towards all the costs of running a program including recording, live streaming, and receptions among many others. Now, help us reach our goal of $2,000 to elevate science and we can continue the momentum that consistently pushes us past our limits.
