Nature on the Go

Nature on the Go Registration is now open for programs held March through mid-June.

Interact with specimens from the Nature Museum's collections in your classroom to experience The Chicago Academy of Sciences up close! This two part program begins with an experienced museum educator leading your students through an inquiry-based education program with a focus on regional species. For the second part of the program, teachers will receive a $100 field trip bus reimbursement to bring their class to the Nature Museum.
