Summer Design Studio: Raptors in the Sky

Intensive video design workshop

Swooping from the sky at speeds over 230 mph, the peregrine falcon is the fastest member of the animal kingdom. Yet, this magnificent bird almost vanished from the skies forever. Uncover the story behind the peregrine falcon’s fight for survival, and then create your own video featuring this remarkable bird.

In this intensive video design workshop, teens will meet a live peregrine, go behind-the-scenes of The Field Museum and speak with researchers and conservationists. Design Studio teens will work with educators and video professionals on storytelling and video production techniques to produce short videos inspired by peregrine falcons and the work of The Field Museum. Design Studio teens will host a public screening of their videos for family, friends, and community members at the Museum at the conclusion of the program. No prior video experience necessary.
