Science at The Field

Understanding Extinction Patterns

This August and September, join The Field Museum for a series of events and programs focused on understanding extinction patterns and causes, and learn more about what we can do about it. See what lessons we’ve learned from extinct species, like the passenger pigeon, to extinct ecosystems. Hear about success stories of species that have been recovered from the brink of extinction, including the peregrine falcons and the American bison.

After-school Programs for Teens

Starting Wednesday, September 17, explore the Museum year-round with our after-school programs. Each Wednesday afternoon until October 15, tinker, create, and innovate in our digital studio. In a connected world, even gardens are part of the Internet of Things. Come learn the basics of urban gardening and how electronics can give us better insights into homegrown food at The Field Museum. Programs are free of charge and open to teens ages 14-18. Teens can arrive up until 5:00pm.
