Before You Apply

Commitment When you schedule a Bugscope session, you reserve time on equipment in an active research lab, and a whole team of people reserves time in their schedules to chat with you online. If you cannot join us at your scheduled time please let us know, even at the last moment, so we can free up our staff and equipment.

Planning Ahead During the school season, we may be booked up 6 weeks in advance. We may not be able to accept sessions on short notice.

What To Expect Once you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email. Expect a response in several business days. If your application is accepted, we will email you to choose a date and time for your live session.

For more details, see our F.A.Q.


Privacy Note: The personal information in this section will never be distributed and will only be used to contact you regarding your Bugscope session. The rest of your application is considered public information and will be viewable on our website. See an example
