HackLabs: Data in Difficult Places

This school year, the Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium are teaming up to present HackLabs – a chance for Chicago high schoolers to learn more about Citizen Science and to design your own experiments! HackLabs will take place once a month on Saturdays from October through February.

HackLabs are free programs for a limited number of teens, and tickets are first come, first served.

First workshop is October 11th at The Adler Planetarium.
