About this event

Middle-schoolers can find out what it takes to be a scientist in this one-day, Saturday virtual club.

A young girl stands in front of a glass case writing notes on a clipboard. Inside the case is set of three skulls. The girl is wearing glasses and a yellow seater.

How do scientists see the world around us? What tools do they use to make discoveries about life on Earth and natural habitats and history? Preteens ages 11–14 can find out this summer with our virtual tween club.

Join a one-day, online Saturday club from 9:30am–1:30pm. Middle-school science-lovers can learn what it takes to be a field observer. They’ll hear from real scientists at work in the field across and beyond Chicago. They’ll get a break from 11:30am–12pm to grab lunch, play outside, and complete the midday activity. Club members then rejoin the club in the afternoon and share what they discovered in the habitats close to home.
