About this event

See how we preserve specimens in our mammal collection with Collections Assistant Rebecca Banasiak.

Every Friday from 11am to 1pm, meet members of our scientific staff in the Grainger Science Hub and learn about their latest discoveries and newest research. They'll bring real artifacts and specimens from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. You never know what you might discover when you meet a scientist, from natural habitat restoration to preparing new mammal species for installation.

This program is free with museum admission. Join us for this hands-on opportunity to learn what our scientists do every day.
