Chicago Science Fest

May 20, 2015 7:51 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)
The Illinois Science Council (ISC) is hosting its inaugural Chicago Science Fest May 28-30. It's all in honor of the 2600th birthday of science. (In 585 B.C., the Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus correctly predicted a solar eclipse. His rigorous thinking and advocacy that phenomena are due to natural causes, rather than angry gods, made Thales incredibly influential and dubbed the "father of science." The date of the eclipse was May 28 which means this year can be deemed the 2600th anniversary of the founding of the field of science.)
