The View from Earth: 400 Years of Astronomical Discovery

Presented by: Joe DalSanto, Assistant Professor of Astronomy, College of DuPage

Humans have always looked up at the night sky and wondered. But the invention of the telescope 400 years ago completely changed our view of the cosmos. This presentation will provide an overview of the numerous, incredible discoveries such as planets, stars and galaxies made possible by the most important astronomical invention ever created.

Hidden in Plain Sight: Sears Homes of Chicagoland

Join Lara Solonickne and explore the world of “kit homes” –  houses sold by mail-order retailers Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, Harris Homes and others. Kit homes were sold out of the pages of catalogs in the early 1900s. Sears alone offered more than 370 designs – everything ranging from Arts and Crafts bungalows to Foursquares to Colonial Revivals. Sears homes came in 30,000-piece kits and were shipped to all 48 states – many in the Midwest. 

Day one (Friday) is the classroom presentation. On day two (Saturday), enjoy a two-mile walk through a nearby neighborhood to discover the kit homes hidden in plain sight in Aurora.
