Roycemore ShareFair – Sat. April 25

Roycemore is excited to host the first Chicago/Evanston Share Fair Nation event! Share Fair is a FREE two-part event that brings together educators, students and families to experience creative methods of transforming education in science, technology, engineering and math.
