Events for Teens



Youth Council

Youth Council is a dynamic group of passionate and dedicated high school teens who work together to create a stronger partnership between The Field Museum and teens. Youth Council is made up of 12-14 high school teens from across the Chicago area who meet on select Saturdays from September through May, and plan three curioCITY events. curioCITY is a teen-only event of career exploration that matches a Field Museum scientist together with a non-scientist.

ID Day 2017

Picked up a rock that looks suspiciously like a dinosaur fossil? Snapped a photo of a bright blue bird that you can’t identify? Your annual chance to get a world-renowned scientist’s take on it is coming up on September 23 at The Field Museum’s ID Day.
