Today our 2013 Field Museum Women In Science (FMWIS) summer interns shared their summer research with the public.  It was great fun to see our high school intern, Racquel Kelley, show off some of flesh eating beetles that clean the bones of the birds she is helping curate, and hear our undergraduate intern, Stephanie Morgan, get visitors of all ages excited about ants and the importance of our collections (see the associated photo).

Learn more about our FMWIS group and our summer internship opportunities.
