About this event

Lani Alabanza-Chan and Trinity Medellin will be showcasing Chinese Shadow Puppets

Join us for a fun session featuring Chinese Shadow Puppetry.

This session is held in conjunction with the Field Museum’s Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month programming.

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.
