The Project

Project Title Do Earwigs Have Ears?
Insects To Study dragonfly, tick, ant, beetle, etc...
Project Description We study insects as part of our 3rd grade science curriculum. The opportunity to analyze specimens with a hands lens and the digital microscope that we have in class allows for endless questions and curiosities from students. By collaborating with Bugscope, we can take this investigation to a deeper level. The electron microscope further enables us to view insects and parts of insects in a way that many students (and teachers) never thought possible. We will draw observations of our learnings, share our discoveries with other students in the building, and learn to incorporate inquiry into our daily lives.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? We have done Bugscope for 3 years now in our elementary school. It's fascinating and we find the entomologists to be the ideal teachers to us and our students. Our technology coordinator first referred me to your site.
