Science Detectives – Online! – Wonderful Wasps: Brilliant Builders

  • Wednesday, October 21, 2020
  • 11:30am - 12:30pm

Science Detectives Online Wasps

New interactive offering for children 8-10 years old: Hidden under the eaves of buildings are the homes of a wonderful variety of wasps and bees.  Together we will peek inside these nests and explore the fascinating lives of their builders.  A highlight of the program will be an exploration of an Organ Pipe Mud Dauber nest. 

This session comes with a kit that allows children to actively participate during the program. It includes natural objects that participants can continue to explore long after the program is over.  All activities encourage the development of skills in scientific observation and thinking.
