Bring the family out for a fun night of STEM activities!

Special Needs Preview
We are collaborating with the Wheaton-Warrenville Special Needs PTA to open the exhibits at 5:30 pm for families with children with special needs to attend and explore. The quieter exhibits will be in the commons area as well as the large gym. Robotics will be in the small gym.

The STEM Expo will open to the general public at 6:30 pm. All are welcome to stay for the entire event that ends at 9:00 pm. Reserving a Special Needs Preview Ticket will give you access to the entire event, you do not need to reserve this ticket + a general admission ticket.
