Illinois Science Council is an independent 501c3 organization working to increase understanding and appreciation of science, technology, engineering and math through engaging public programs for adults. ISC reduces the intimidation aspect of science by using casual venues and formats, like films and author talks, and intriguing topics, like, ‘Chemistry of Beer’ at a brewery, ‘Chemistry of Chocolate’ with Blommer Chocolate, Your Brain on Happiness, and Your Brain on Love, Sex and Oxytocin. ISC is also the host of Chicago’s Pi Day 3.14 mile fun run.
