Announcing Illinois Novaree 2018!

Posted on

Hey everyone, the Illinois Novaree 2018 will take place on April 7th and April 14th from 8:00AM-4:30PM each day! The cost of this years event will be $15 for both Saturdays and $9 for a single Saturday.

Since we are offering the option to come on a single Saturday, our scheduling process will be a little different this year. Once registration opens on 12/14, people who would like to attend will pick up to 10 preferred classes. Based on the curriculum and interest for each course, they will be offered as a single day course that take a full 3 hours on a single day or a two-day course with 1.5 hours on each Saturday. This means that every attendee can participate in 2-4 classes! There will be separate tickets on EventBrite if you choose to come on a single day vs. coming on both days.

The final schedule will be posted 3-4 weeks before the actual event and each attendee will be asked to confirm the classes they are registered for. We will also offer refunds up to the week before the event! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact us!

Thank you for Illinois Novaree 2017

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all for coming to the Illinois Novaree this year! We have received a lot of positive feedback from parents and scouts, and are glad that the event was a success! This year, 40 participants attended who earned badges and got some unique, hands-on experience in a large variety of STEM fields. We are planning to make the event even more fantastic next year at Illinois Novaree 2018.

As always, if you guys have any questions, comments, or general feedback, feel free to send us an email at

Thank you all, and we hope to see you again next year!
