Class Curriculum

Over 900,000 different types of insects live in the world. In fact, insects account for 80% of all animal species! Insects are a very important part of any ecosystem. They help decompose plant and animal material, pollinate plants, and are part of the food chain. High in protein, insects are the only food source for many types of frogs, lizards, birds and mammals. Humans even eat bugs! Scientists estimate there are millions of insects yet to be discovered.  You’ll learn how to identify insects, learn about a cool insect adaptation, create a butterfly feeder, and engineer a hornets’ nest.  Become a junior entomologist during this 6 week program!
