Club Shedd Registration for Fall 2016 Now Open

August 01, 2016 7:15 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)

From the Shedd Aquarium web site:


Do you have what it takes to be in the club? We invite you to be a member! Club Shedd is a semester long program for passionate and driven teens with an interest in science and aquarium careers. Each semester, teens work together alongside Shedd professionals, behind the scenes, in Shedd's Teen Learning Lab, and with amazing resources to develop solutions for real aquarium challenges. Club Shedd provides you with skill-building opportunities and workshops to tackle the challenges presented by Shedd partners. In the past year, teens have inspired and developed solutions that have impacted the aquarium in these projects:

  • Enriching animal habitats through sculpting and molding/casting
  • Modernizing gallery exhibits utilizing digital software and 3D modeling
  • Designing ways to engage Shedd guests with our surrounding gardens, local plant species, and even Shedd's bees!
