Tween Saturdays

Tween girl looks closely at items on a plate, with collection storage in background.

Sign up your tween for special Saturday programs developed just for ages 10 to 14! In these day-long explorations of Field Museum specimens, middle school students can learn about fishes, insects, and even dinosaur fossils. Venturing behind the scenes, tweens will explore how and why specimens are collected and end each session with a unique hands-on experience based on their observations.

Sessions last from 10am until 3pm (nut-free lunch provided) and focus on a particular collection area theme—programming is different for each theme (Fishes, Fossils, and Insects), but the two dates with the same theme will have the same programming. Pick one theme or enjoy all three!
