Event description

Description

The Field Museum’s Youth Council is excited to announce curioCITY, a free event for high school students at The Field Museum. Featuring a Chicago FBI Agent and Shark Biologist, Kevin Feldheim of The Field Museum, curioCITY aims to bring people of different careers to share in conversation their seemingly unconnected paths. Field Museum scientist, Kevin Feldheim, focuses his research on inferring the mating system and population biology of sharks through DNA analysis. For security purposes, the identity of the FBI agent will be announced the day of the event. High school students, stop by The Field Museum on Saturday, January 27th at 1pm for snacks and conversation! Event is FREE, snacks, fun activities, a prize drawing, and museum admission is provided! --- make sure to invite your friends! Seats go fast, register today!

FAQ's

Do I need to register for the event?

Yes, high school students must individually register in order to attend the event.

How do I get to The Field Museum?

The Field Museum is accessible by public transportation, car or bike. The closest CTA Train stop is the Roosevelt Red/Orange/Green station. The #146 -Inner Drive/Michigan Express/Museum Campus bus picks up outside the Roosevelt station and drops off in front of The Field Museum. It is approximately a 15 minute walk to the Museum from the CTA station. Paid parking is available in the Soldier Field garage. Two Divvy stations are available at the Museum near the South and East entrances.

Who may attend the event?

This event is for high school students in grades 9-12. No exceptions can be made.

I’m a parent or guardian, what may I do while my teen attends curioCITY?

Parents and Guardians may purchase a ticket to the Museum or walk around Museum Campus. Multiple coffee shops and restaurants are located near the Roosevelt CTA station. High School youth participating in curioCITY will receive free basic admission to the museum after the event.

I’m an afterschool provider, how do I register my group for curioCITY?

We do not provide for group registration. Youth interested in attending curioCITY need to register individually and meet the age/grade criteria to attend (9-12th grades).

I’m a parent, may my middle schooler attend curioCITY?

This is an event only for high school students in 9-12th grades. However, we do offer other opportunities for middle school youth. Please see our Teens and Tweens page for more information.

I love curioCITY and want to get more involved, how do I do that?

Great! Stop by and say hello to our friendly Youth Council members (they are the ones in the lavender shirts at all of the events). We’d love to get to know you and hear your ideas for speakers for curioCITY!

Another way you can get more involved is by applying for The Field Museum’s Youth Council who help plan and host four curioCITY’s per year. This year long commitment will allow you to engage deeply with the Museum, meet other teens across the city, and provide you the chance to have greater agency for youth voice in the Museum. Applications open in summer. Be in the know by visiting https://teenstakethefield.com/get-involved/
