New businesses planning to open in Homewood include martini bar downtown, Krispy Kreme on Halsted

Homewood Science Center hosted its first public science event Saturday, May 21, in conjunction with Homewood Rail Fest. 

PopUp Science included tinkering activities that provided an opportunity to learn a little engineering and some physics, including rubberband-powered cars and balloon racers. It was a bigger version of activities sponsored by the center at summer events last year. 

The Think Tank, a mobile neuroscience display from the University of Chicago, was on hand, with two students and a UC graduate ready to answer questions and help patrons learn about the brain and how it works.
