Institute for Science Education & Science Communication
Welcome to the Science Institute of the Department of Science and Mathematics at Columbia College Chicago!
As an integral part of the Department of Science and Mathematics, the Institute for Science Education and Science Communication (“Science Institute”) seeks to encourage and stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) through its programs: Junior Research Scientists, Scientists for Tomorrow, and Scientists for a Day. Through its programming, the Science Institute provides educational environments that encourage the general public (especially elementary, middle, and high school students) to learn, explore, and discover S.T.E.M.-related subjects and careers, and to become well-informed citizens.
