Brain Scoopin' - Live!

A woman doing a science demonstration and talking to a crowd of people listening

Free with Basic admission. Join Chief Curiosity Correspondent Emily Graslie of The Brain Scoop in the Grainger Science Hub on select Thursdays from 1pm to 3pm. She'll do live educational demonstrations that give a close-up look at how specimens are prepared. A "Grossometer" posted at the entrance will let you know what to expect before seeing real specimen preparation in action. Each event will feature a different organism, so come back every time for something new!  

This is a great chance to learn more about The Field Museum's collections and research, check out the current interactive displays in the Science Hub, and ask Emily Graslie your natural history questions.

This event takes place on the following Thursdays, 1-3pm: 

  • June 29
  • July 27
  • August 24
