SciTech Hands On Museum – Aurora, Illinois

In 1988, Ernest Malamud, a physicist at FermiLab, had a dream for the future. He reached out to his friends, his co-workers, and his community and together, they created a reality that has touched MILLIONS of people.

What started as one man’s dream of the future has become the reality of SciTech Hands On Museum where children and adults alike explore knowledge and discover concepts and imagine THEIR future.

Located in a historic post office in the heart of downtown Aurora, SciTech is 30,000 square feet that encourages guests to Imagine, Explore, and Discover. SciTech remains true to our roots and rely on the community and volunteers to bring innovation into a learning experience. Exhibits are sponsored by local businesses and offices, including Molex Electronics Solutions, Commonwealth Edison, FermiLab, Comcast, and many others!

Come to SciTech with an open mind, ready to learn and explore STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) through over 200 interactive exhibits which inspire education and imagination. Every exhibit is a mini-experiment with information about what to DO at the station and the scientific explanation for what is happening.

Bring the entire family! Young and old minds alike will discover science in the world around them. SciTech also offers group field trips, overnights, scout programs, birthday parties and day camps.
