Dear Science Field Trips Meetup Member, 

Illinois Science Council invites you to a special fundraising event.  There will be beautiful people and smart people and interesting people (often the same people), and food and drinks and all things science.  Too much fun to possibly explain here, so come see for yourself!

(a scientifically enhanced fundraiser!)

You won't want to miss this!    


Click here to get tickets now.

Tickets are $70 ($85 at the door)

Early bird special ends TOMORROW - $60 if purchased by January 14




Attire - Cocktail party but weather appropriate.  That means, if you want to wear your cute party dress or cool new shirt - fantastic.  But if it's cold and blizzard-y out and you can't imagine wearing anything but flannel-lined jeans and a big sweater, that's fine with us!  You can ditch your boots at the door - the drinks and conversation will warm you right up.  Just no pajamas please. 

Parking - Public parking available at Mart Parc Self Park lot at Kinzie & Wells Streets, one block north of DIRTT.

Public Transit - Easy!  Event is right across the street from the southeast doors of Merchandise Mart.  CTA brown line stop is on the 2nd level of the Mart.  Tip - there is no down escalator inside the Mart outside the CTA turnstiles; take the stairs on the left. Or, LaSalle #156 bus stops one block east at 320 LaSalle.  Follow the narrow sidewalk north of the building.

Handicap accessible - yes, DIRTT is accessible.

Printed tickets - no need to print out tickets. Provide your name, and guest name(s), with your ticket purchase and we'll have it on the list at the door.

This is a 21+ event.
Bonus treat - Make it a night out!  Fulton's on the River (a fantastic restaurant) will offer bar and menu specials to anyone who mentions they're coming to the ISC event!  It's a block away at 315 N. LaSalle Street, so you can treat yourself to a special dinner before our special event! 
Bonus Quote - "Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it."
 - Albert Einsten[address About Illinois Science Council:  

ISC is an independent, volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that engages, educates, and entertains the adult public about science and technology in our everyday lives.  We like to showcase the scientists and research of the Chicago-area institutions and companies that make Chicago the nation's true "City of Science." We are inspired and motivated by this quote by Carl Sagan:  "We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology."  It's true, but it's also extremely serious. ISC explores all areas of science and technology but we do it with a fun, non-stuffy approach.  We don't care about what's been forgotten since we were in school (or never learned in the first place).  We keep our "mascots" - Muppets Dr. Bunson Honeydew and Beaker - close by because they remind us that science and technology are not only important, but interesting and fun too!  It's all about simply continuing to exercise our sense of curiosity.
