Incredible Insects! Explore the fantastic lives of beetles, millipedes, tarantulas, walking sticks, whip scorpions and more! We’ll bring our hands-on Insect Discovery Lab to your class or next event. Our presenters will introduce your group to the extraordinarily diverse world of insects and other arthropods and teach you about their key role in the web of life. Scientific observation, insect identification, and the natural history of bugs’ lives are just some of the areas we focus on.
We also do educational outreach in the form of tabling events with our Insect Discovery Lab, which will surely add life to your event, science fair, or party! Two energetic educators will host the tables, engage and help children and adults to hold the insects, and to tell visitors the stories of the incredible lives of these amazing creatures.
