The STEM Teen Read
Throughout the year, teens read science fiction books and then meet up at NIU for free discussions and Q&A sessions with NIU experts who explain the science behind the fiction. While reading each book, teens can go to our Facebook page to chat, find cool science articles, connect with other teen science fiction fans, and post questions for other readers and experts.
