    About this event

    See the latest science firsthand in the Grainger Science Hub.

    Abbott Laboratories' Women in STEM scientists visit the Grainger Science Hub to discuss glucose levels in our food, and how we measure the blood glucose levels in our bodies. Abbott's Women in STEM scientists will also share their educational and career journeys with those aspiring to study or work in the sciences.

    Scientists, researchers, and collections managers are behind the scenes every day, uncovering new information and taking care of our collection.

    During Meet a Scientist, you can find them in the Grainger Science Hub. They'll discuss their work and share real items from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. From collections care to field work, and dinosaurs to ecology, there’s a world of science to explore.

    Visit the Science Hub on select weekdays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day.
