The Project

Project Title Science club
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description I run the science club at the junior high. I have in the past few years done the bugscope activity with my science club students. They have learned a lot through this activity. This activity helps students learn about insects without going on a field trip which has become very difficult with the schools having less funds. The students also learn that technology these days helps them to see the insects through a microscope without being there in person.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? My husband works for the U of I and he told me that this will be good for the science club.
