|The mission of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science is to present science as a rational observation and systematic investigation of natural phenomena; to stress the importance of critical thinking|
and logical reasoning; and to encourage students to view science as an interdisciplinary study applicable to society and its interactions with the environment.
Region 6 serves students from the north half of Cook and DuPage Counties, and Lake County. The Region 6 Exposition is a science research competition for junior and senior high-school students. The purpose of this event is to allow students an opportunity to communicate their research results and to promote discussion of their work with scientific colleagues
