Family Science Investigation: Introduction to Entomology
No bugs in this class, only insects! In this two part series we will learn the anatomy and classification of major insect groups. Using sweep nets, areal nets and aquatic nets, we will collect insects in the field and take them back to the lab for identification. With the guidance of a real museum entomologist, you will learn how to confidently identify the creatures that belong to the largest animal group in the world.
Family Science Investigations programs offer families an opportunity to participate together in monthly science classes related to Museum research, including topics in ecology, paleontology, geology and biology. These classes are especially useful for homeschoolers looking for additional reinforcement to curriculum goals, or any family group that simply enjoys learning together!
Program Instructor: Bob Alderink and Colin Brammer, Coordinators for Natural World investigate Lab.
