Arthropods, especially insects, are a part of our everyday life. We paint with them, we dye our food with them, and we even enlist some insects to make clothing for us! During this class, we will look at the economic impact that insects and other arthropods have made on the human world. We will also look at some of the most beautiful arthropods and some of the most dangerous.

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.
