Sponsored by NIU STEM Outreach, DeKalb County libraries and the DeKalb Municipal Band, the Bright Futures Fair offers a night of free family fun with music, sound, science and technology.
Hundreds of children and parents throughout the area have learned about the science of music at hands-on events at the DeKalb, Cortland and Sycamore public libraries over the past several months. Children created instruments, made music, and learned scientific principles related to sound. More hands-on activities will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Hopkins Park Shelter, including:
- Musical Tesla Coil
- PVC Pipe Organ
- Acoustic Art
- Face Painting
- Sno Cones
- Electrocuted Hot Dogs
After the fair, families can stay for the opening concert of the DeKalb Municipal Band’s 160th season, starting at 7 p.m.
