Youth Design Team Spring 2012
Green Home Chicago focused on ways concerned citizens can be environmentally-friendly.
The teens designed, planned, built and curated their exhibit entirely by themselves. Youth met with Museum professionals and curators to learn how an exhibit gets developed at one of the world's most popular museums. Teen participants then took on the same roles and responsibilities as an actual exhibitions team at the Museum. From content writers to video producers to interactives to social media, this exhibitions team had every angle covered.
Green Home Chicago is no longer on display, but you can still see some parts of the exhibit. Check out the Green Home Chicago preview video.
Youth Design Team is a collaboration between The Field Museum and the New Learning Institute of the Pearson Foundation.
