Field Museum Summer Camp “Tween Week”

Scientists do far more than observe and report. In the field, in labs, and across the world they collect data and specimens to tell the story of the earth an its people. Tween Camp: Fish Unleashed, gives young people aged 11 to 13 the opportunity to meet a Field Museum fish scientist, explore the upcoming Specimens exhibition, and go behind-the-scenes and see The Field Museum’s fishes collection. Using the Scratch programming language and the Specimens exhibition as inspiration, tweens will create their own digital interactive story. Join Tween Camp: Fish Unleashed and dive deeply into scientific discovery during this one week summer camp for tweens at The Field Museum!
