How can you tell the difference between a moth and a butterfly? Are earthworms insects? What is a pollinator, why are they so important?
This week kids will start a bug collection by preparing a butterfly specimen, collecting bugs with a homemade bug aspirator and learning how to use a pocket microscope. We will be learning about inspirational STEM trailblazers; Maria Sibylla Merian, Dr. Margaret James Strickland Collins and Rachael E Bonoan.
Maria Sybilla Merian, the Mother of Entomology
Dr. Margaret James Strickland Collins, Entomologist
Rachael E. Bonoan, Assistant Biology Professor
