Treasures lie hidden within The Field Museum’s vaults. Creatures lurk within its halls. Students can unlock the museum’s secrets via Specimania, a new, free downloadableiPhone and iPad app that contains collectible cards featuring artifacts, animals, fossils, plants and more from the institution’s vast collections. As they explore the deck, students will learn more about the headline-making history of each card character and test their newfound knowledge with the Trivia Question portion of the game. They can also compete with their friends to see who comes out on top. Young students can get in on the action, too, by matching card characters in a memory game.
