Families are invited to see how artists work with light and electricity and then apply basic concepts of electronics and circuitry to make some electric art of their own. This free, hands-on activity lab will be presented by professional artists and physicists from NIU’s Time Arts - Design and Media Arts Department, NIU STEM Outreach, and the Digital Convergence Lab. This activity is for children who are 10 and up.

The event starts at 12pm on Saturday, May 11th, and is located at the Physics Building at NIU. For more information, please visit
