If you live in Chicago, or thereabouts, you have a treat in store!
The most broad-ranging scientific conference that I know of, with talks by top researchers in many many fields, will be in Chicago this February, and they’re having special events for families.
To be more specific, the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will be held from 12-16 February. They’ll be holding Family Science Days, with activities for kids and their parents, as well as “Meet the Scientist” events.
I’ve been to a few of these meetings (and the rumor is true: the speaker really does give out samples with his talk about the chemistry of chocolate!) amd always found it enlightening, amusing, and inspiring.
More info as I get it!
