Meet Dr. Michelle Trautwein and learn about her research in entomology. Her research focuses on the insect biodiversity of our homes or classrooms! Students will have the opportunity to explore their classrooms to find and identify six-legged creatures. The students may then share pictures with the scientists prior to the program. 

S.M.A.R.T.S. PROGRAM (Grades 3-12) (Scientists Making Answers Relevant for Teachers and Students.)  The S.M.A.R.T.S. program allows students to interact with a scientist and learn about their research.
