Welcome to the Website dedicated to the Chicago Public Schools Exhibition of Student Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM) Research.
Our Mission, Purpose & Objectives are here

Activities for the 72nd Chicago Exhibition of Student STEM Research prior to the City-wide Exhibition in March of 2022 will be virtual. 

The 2021  STEM  Exhibition results are here.
The 2022 theme is

2022 is the 72nd year of the Chicago Exhibition of Student STEM Research.  The 2022 Citywide Exhibition will be a hybrid event from about March 15 to March 21, 2022.

This Web site is designed to assist the student in the development of a research project, an essay, or a symposium paper in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM). The information on this website will be taken from the 2022 STEM Exhibition handbook (available here). This information should be read carefully and thoroughly by the student and the teacher. Planning and selection of a STEM research project, the method of developing a scientific paper, and the adherence to safety requirements are explained in depth in this handbook.


If significant progress has been made on a STEM investigation, the participant may exhibit his/her project at the local school STEM Exposition. If successful, the participant may move on to a Chicago Public Schools Regional STEM Exposition. From this level, the project may be chosen for exhibit at the Citywide Chicago Public Schools STEM Exposition

A student researcher at the high school level may also submit a STEM based research paper for evaluation and possible presentation in the Symposium. To participate in the Symposium, a student is not required to have an exhibit to display at the exposition, but he/she must conduct primary STEM  research as a basis for the paper.
