Meet a Scientist

About this recurring event

See the latest science firsthand in the Grainger Science Hub.

A Field Museum educator holds open a dimetrodon skull to show three visitors. Other skulls and a wet specimen in a jar sit on the table.

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 Wednesdays and Fridays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day.
