Take a closer look and explore the world of minuscule bugs!  Learn together with hands-on activities that show you how to classify and identify these numerous and diverse creatures!  Participate in activities in our incredible Arthropods gallery.   Observe and touch real live invertebrates and even go outside and collect some of your own!  Dig in the dirt and see how invertebrates help us compost food waste into soil.  Create your own scientific equipment to continue the study of entomology at home.  All activities are designed to be fun and interactive experiences for elementary age students and their families to participate in together.
