Project Title Utilizing Technology to inspire and excite students about science
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description We have participated in Bugscope for the last 3 of 4 years. Our local paper highlighted this event as an innovative way to inspire our students to get excited about science and the innovative uses of technology in the classroom. Students will be comparing and contrasting physical features of a variety of bugs to better understand adaptations and structure of a variety of specimens. We missed out last year and I would hate to miss it again this year. Students will be studying microscopy and entomology before we meet with you on skype.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? Again, I have done bugscope the last 3 of 4 years and have loved every minute of it. I hope we have the opportunity this year to continue our tradition in my classroom.
