After-school programs: Electronic Gardens

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.

After-school programs for Teens

Explore the Museum year-round with our after-school programs. Tinker, create and innovate in our digital studio. Programs run from 4-6pm, are free of charge and open to teens ages 14-18. All teens must enter through the West Doors of the Museum and must present a school ID, or valid state ID. Pre-registration is not required. Teens that arrive after 5pm will not be able to gain entry to the building.  Contact us at with questions.
