Field Museum Program Brought Together Two Unlikely Subjects

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Last Friday, December 4, The Field Museum launched a new teen program, curioCITY, which aims to explore the connections between science and modern culture. At this event, Insect Collection Manager Crystal Maier was joined by Brian Posen, Artistic Director of Stage 773 and Head of Beginning Improvisation at Second City. The two met on stage for the first time where they interviewed each other about their respective careers and invited the audience to ask questions and see real insect specimens up close. curioCITY is a new program offered by The Field Museum that will take place on a quarterly basis. The goal of the program is to engage students in exploring careers in science and culture by teaming up scientists from different areas of natural history with professionals in other fields. All curioCITY events are free for teens aged 14-18 with high school or state-issued ID. The next event for this program is currently being planned for late February next year.
