Science Celebration

One of the nearly 200 attendees shares her project.

The Women’s Board of Lincoln Park Zoo along with zoo educators annually host the Science Celebration, the culmination of Lincoln Park Zoo’s Young Researchers Collaborative program. This event provides a venue for students from a diverse range of Chicago-area schools to showcase science projects developed as part of an educational partnership between the zoo and the surrounding community, which supports classroom teachers in guiding students through the development of original research projects. 

Approximately 200 students participate in the program and present their findings at the Science Celebration. The event is open to the public, giving students the opportunity to share their findings with their peers, their families, scientists, guest speakers and other community members.
