How would you study a leopard shark’s diet? Or a sea turtle’s life cycle? Visit animals at Shedd while practicing research techniques that marine biologists use to answer questions about animals and their habitats. During these special workshops designed for Scouts, meet animals, get hands on with games and activities, and explore this unique career. Every Scout will leave with a one-of-a-kind Shedd Aquarium Marine Biologist patch.
New dates coming soon.
