Explore what butterflies are, what they look like, what they eat and why they are important to us. Students will become butterfly scientists and learn about the body parts and life cycle of butterflies.

Virtual Classes are hands-on, inquiry-based learning sessions for elementary students. Students work in groups with Museum specimens sent to your site prior to program. Programs are 50 minutes long and correlate to the North Carolina Science Essential Standards.

Registration information: Participants must have some form of videoconferencing equipment or software to participate. A test with your site is required prior to scheduling. Programs must be scheduled six weeks in advance.
