What is the Teen Learning Lab?
A space that’s co-designed by other teens for you to explore your curiosities about science, animals and the natural world. Meet new friends and collaborate on existing projects and programs–or even create your own. We'll answer your questions about aquatic careers, science fair or research projects, or even how to become a teen tweeter or blogger, photographer or artist. Let’s explore your interests together!
Here, you can...
Connect with Shedd Aquarium mentors; produce videos, audio, podcasts and photos; participate in social media activities; conduct scientific research; explore aquatic careers; develop and research animals, science and the natural world; lead or participate in stewardship activities; receive assistance with science fair or research projects; participate in workshops, experiences or projects to build your own academic or personal portfolio; debate environmental issues; hang out, study, read or connect with other teens.
Here, you can use our...
Apple MacBook Pros and Mac Pros, podcasting equipment, iPads, scanners, iPod docking stations, printers, Smart Board and Adobe Software Suite (including Photoshop, Illustrator and iMovie).
Teens will have web access and free WIFI.
