Did you know that The Field Museum has over 40 million specimens in their collection, and less than 1% is out for public viewing? Join the Discovery Squad and share the stories of the hidden treasures of The Field through the use of real objects from museum’s collection.
Come learn about science, make friends and improve your communication skills as a Discovery Squad volunteer.
If you don’t know much about science or don’t have communication training, we will teach you.
The Discovery Squad program occurs every day. Volunteers must be able to sign up for at least 4 shifts (10am-1pm or 12pm-3pm) per month, or 2 full days from 10am-3pm (includes a 45min lunch break).
Field Museum volunteers receive wonderful benefits including a Field Museum membership during their placement, free parking, free admission to The Field Museum for volunteers and their family, and access to weekly scientific seminars and lectures.
