Teen Orientations

Registration is now open!

Come join us for a Teen Orientation and discover what being a teen at Shedd Aquarium is all about!

The Teen Orientation will welcome you to the aquarium, introduce you to some of the unique animals that call Shedd home and invite you to opportunities available to teens! Discover how Shedd is a place for teens like you to explore their interests, gain valuable career advice and make a difference within the aquarium, while connecting with like-minded peers along the way.
