On your mark, get set, BioBlitz! Become a citizen scientist as we observe, find and record as many species as possible exploring the NIU east lagoon. Talk to graduate students who will help you identify a wide variety of animals and plants. Learn to use the iNaturalist app to help record what you find. Let’s connect with nature. But there is a catch! We only have two hours. A fun activity for young and old alike. 

Results of all organisms found will be presented at STEM Fest on Saturday, October 23.

Recommended for Pre-K and up, with adult family members.

Please note: Family Fun STEAM Studio sessions are designed for the whole family to attend together. Adults should stay and work on activities together with children.


$10 per session for up to a family of four, each additional registrant is $2 per session.
