The stories of exploration, research, and STEM careers come alive when you hear about a journey directly from a professional scientist. During this presentation, your students will have a chance to talk in person with a museum scientist—hearing first-hand accounts of exciting field research and exploring real objects from museum collections. After the presentation, your students take away a Museum Quest workbook to guide their own science investigation in the exhibition halls.
