Science, Off Script: Teens Take The Field

Friday, April 5, 2013 to Sunday, August 3, 2014

Follow some extremely cool teens through a hilariously frenetic, scientifically rigorous, totally creative 5-day summer filmmaking experience. Find out how teens talked a scientist into rapping, turned mummification into claymation, and had a Skype call with an ancient Egyptian. This ground-breaking Field Museum exhibition features original storyboards and props designed by youth, as well as real Museum artifacts and the ground-breaking scientific research that teens were allowed access to for their films.

Science, Off Script: Teens Take The Field is a chance to see The Field Museum’s collection and research like never before: through the eyes of teens. You’ll be amazed at the power of amateur film to change your perspective.

The programs featured in this exhibition have been developed in the partnership with The Field Museum and the New Learning Institute of the Pearson Foundation.
