The Beckman Institute Open House is scheduled for Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6. Guests of all ages can do hands-on demos and activities, solve a science scavenger hunt, and meet the people behind world-changing scientific discoveries.
Extraordinary science can change the lives of ordinary people. That’s the philosophy at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, where researchers from over 40 scientific areas work together to ask and answer big questions — about human health and medical imaging, cleaner energy and greener plastics, and even artificial intelligence and bioinspired robots.
The Beckman Institute Open House is an opportunity for Champaign-Urbana community members to encounter the science, meet the people, and experience the impact of world-changing discovery. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to engage with more than 30 exhibits, participate in hands-on demos, complete the science scavenger hunt, and take a commemorative photo at the selfie station. This event is free and open to the public.
