Meet a Scientist: Year of the (Komodo) Dragon


 

Join Joshua Mata, Assistant Collections Manager of Herpetology as we Kick off the Year of the Dragon by learning about some real life dragons! Visitors can view various lizard species named after and resembling dragons, including our impressive Komodo dragon specimens.

Scientists, researchers, and collections managers are behind the scenes every day, uncovering new information and taking care of our collection.

During Meet a Scientist, you can find them in the Grainger Science Hub. They’ll discuss their work and share real items from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. From collections care to field work, and dinosaurs to ecology, there’s a world of science to explore.

Visit the Science Hub on select weekdays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day.
