|Fri 6/14||ESCONI General Meeting 8:00 p.m. College of Dupage, - Tech Ed (TEC) Building, Room 1038B (Map) Topic: Cary Easterday, Northeastern University Illinois, Summer 2013 Options and Activities for ESCONI members, including a scavenger hunt.
The Chicagoland area offers many museums, parks, special events, and activities for ESCONI members. I explore these places throughout the year searching for new materials or field trips for my students in Geology and Earth Sciences at Northeastern Illinois University.
I suspect that most ESCONI members THINK they know these places very well, but will be surprised by what they may have missed, new temporary exhibits for 2013 only, or else exhibits that have changed over the years.
I will discuss these special places and exhibits to the ESCONI members, including the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, Museum of Science and Industry, Brookfield Zoo, Magnificent Mile, Chicago History Museum, Art Institute, Magnificent Mile, Chicago Botanic Gardens, Garfield Park Conservatory, Oriental Institute, and Chicago Portage National Historical Site.
At the end of the talk I will then challenge the ESCONI membership to a scavenger hunt, for which I will provide answers in Fall 2013.
