Workshop #4 Bug Off! April 17th – May 14th: Natural curiosity and fierceness make kids the ultimate bug experts. In this workshop, young scientists in training will practice field techniques used by entomologists (bug scientists) to collect and observe bugs. They will develop research questions, survey nearby natural areas, collect and analyze their findings, and record them in their field journals. They will find out the amazing features that make bugs the largest group of animals in the world.
