Calling all budding scientific explorers! The California Academy of Sciences Public Programs division asked me to create the look and feel for Junior Scientist Adventure, a self-guided scavenger hunt for children ages 8 and older. My solution was to present the program as a special expedition across the many worlds within the museum. I used graphics originally created by artist Michael Bartalos for the Academy as the basis of the Junior Scientist badge. For the activity guide, I illustrated tools and animals in a field sketch style. Each explorer is equipped with a kit that includes a wood pin, field notebook, certificate of achievement, and supplies to help them complete their observations.
