The Office for Science and Technology (Chicago section) organizes the annual French-American Science Festival (FASF), as part of the French Innovation Week organized by the Consulate General of France and French-American Chamber of Commerce in Chicago. The FASF features free conferences and hands-on activities for students and their teachers, to the benefit of French-American scientific exchanges.

Following the great success of the second edition (more than 450 students), a third annual day for the discovery of science by the students is to be held on the 14th of May, 2014. Students and their teachers are invited to participate in free hands-on activities.

About the Hands-On Science Learning day of the 14th of May:
This event is designed for both American and French students from 5th to 10th grade and their teachers. As most of the scientists present will be French speakers, French-speaking audiences are welcome! The booths are run by our scientific partners. Some of the subjects scheduled include:

• Superconductivity
• Electric cars
• Energy storage
• Mathematics
Bring your students to this educational event!
