Think everything you see in your world is all there is to see? Think again! There is another world you can’t see, made up of things that are too small or things that move too fast or too slow for the naked eye to see. There is also stuff that is just plain invisible…UNTIL NOW!

The Saint Louis Science Center Active Creativity Initiative is a network of actively creative people in our region, including hackers, visual artists, do-it-yourselfers, actors, crafters, game developers, and makers, to name a few.

On Saturday, June 7 from 10am to 4pm the Active Creativity Initiative network will host The Bright Ideas Expo: Showcasing St. Louis Creativity at the Saint Louis Science Center.
