Concept Science and Engineering Fair – STEM Exposition

CONSEF and STEM EXPO are STEM events organized by the Concept Schools, a Chicago-based, non-profit, charter management and consulting organization. CONSEF and STEM EXPO are open any student from grades 5th through 12th in the Midwest. 

CONSEF – Project/Poster Session 
The mission of the Concept Science & Engineering Fair is to increase public awareness in science, math and engineering. We believe that every student has the potential to shine in science, math, and engineering; therefore, we encourage every student from public, charter, private or home schools to share research/project summaries through this unique platform.

  • Participants will be awarded according to their scores given by the judges.
  • The poster session is  free and open to the public visits between 12-1 pm. Click to See The Schedule of the Day

Here are several options to support this amazing event.


STEM EXPO – Student Demonstrations
CS Stem Exposition is an event designed to encourage students to showcase the results of their stem studies and their science work. The purpose of the exposition is to apply knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering and math to conduct in-depth, “real-world” investigations and offer another venue for students to practice their presentation skills.

The CS Stem Expo is also open to all students, parents, and community members to enjoy hands-on activities and explore the excitement and opportunities that science offers.  Visit hours 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Click to See The Schedule of the Day
