Smarty Pants Cafe to collaborate with area schools, merging art and science

Smarty Pants Cafe, a science-themed coffee shop in Batavia, has announced a collaboration with local schools that aims to infuse a touch of science into the cafe environment.

Students from area schools will adorn the cafe’s ceiling tiles with a living periodic table of the elements.

The cafe already has enlisted the participation of several schools for the ceiling art project and is looking to enlist even more, with each school adding its perspective to the table.

In a bid to blend education with creativity, students from various grades will visually represent each element from the periodic table.

The initiative will not only add an aesthetically pleasing touch to the cafe, but also will serve as an interactive educational space for customers.

Schools interested in participating in this program can call Smarty Pants Cafe owner Michael Kandah at (630) 326-9410 or stop in at its 817 N. Randall Road location.
