Welcome to the Chicago Cubs STEAM Fair, Presented by Horizon Therapeutics!
This free community event focuses on STEAM activities using interactive baseball examples and gives students the opportunity to present various science fair projects to a panel of front-office executives, retired Cubs players, and STEM experts.
Below you will find the agenda, event map, activity descriptions, and the programming that will take place during the event.
The Chicago Cubs STEAM Education Program, presented by Horizon, provides hands-on STEM curriculum and programming to families, students, and teachers throughout Chicago, Our goal is to utilize baseball and softball examples to improve student interest and performance in STEM through hands--on learning.
At Horizon, we believe science and compassion must work together to transform lives. Our mission to deliver medicines for rare, autoimmune and severe inflammatory diseases and provide compassionate support comes from our strong and simple philosophy to make a meaningful difference for patients and communities in need.
Students that participate in the STEAM Fair will have the opportunity to be selected to attend a week-long summer camp held at Wrigley Field. The camp will focus on STEAM education topics that connect to both baseball and softball while also providing a unique camp experience to turn Wrigley Field into their classroom for the week. The summer camp will take place during the week of June 26th to June 30th.
Here from our two-time student project winner about the camp experience.
