Junior Scientist Workshop: Are There Adventures in the Archives?

Saturday, June 4, 2022

10:00 AM-12:00 PM

Scientists sure do know a lot, but how do they discover so much great stuff from around the world?

For over 200 years, Academy researchers have gone on magnificent expeditions to share observations with future generations. And when they returned to the museum, these researchers filed their photographs, notes and other fantastic findings in the Library and Archives.

Imagine what it was like to travel to the ends of the earth to make new discoveries as you uncover the Academy’s rich past.

Examine some of the Academy’s coolest, oldest specimens and the real, on-paper notes that describe them. Practice your skills of nature observation and identification and make your own field journal.

Please bring a small snack and a filled reusable water bottle. Feel free to bring your personal field journal or other natural history specimens from your own collection to show off, and we will provide everything else. Drop-off and check-in begin at 9:45 a.m. at the Academy’s 19th Street entrance.

Please contact Amy Hoyt, youth and family programs educator, at

Space is limited; register here by Thursday, June 2 at 5 p.m.
