- Teacherwe're trying to get everyone logged on here =)
- Bugscope TeamGood Morning!
- Bugscope TeamWelcome to Bugscope!
- Guesthi esiah

- Guestwas up
- Guestlol when r we going to start the learning
- Guestwhta poppin
- Guestwaaas poppin
- Guestwhats popin
- Guesti love ms lavery
- Guesti love ms shneier
- Bugscope TeamWe are scheduled to give the 'scope up to you guys at 9; in the meantime we are cruising around, finding neat stuff.
- Teacherthanks, we just talked to them about not starting until 9. we're going to talk for a little bit while you continue to get us all set up
- 8:48 am
- 8:54 am
- Bugscope TeamAlright! Session is unlocked and you may start driving when you wish.
- Bugscope TeamToday there are a few flies, a wasp, a junebug, a silverfish, a large black beetle, a spider that is hard to get a good look at because its legs are in the way, some salt from a Wendy's restaurant...
- Bugscope TeamThis, right now, is the pulvillus -- the sticky pad -- on one of a fly's tarsi. Tarsi are the segments of the arm toward the end, like here, where the claw is.
- Guestdo they walk on it
- Guestwhat is the biggest bug ever found
- Guesthow far do ants dig tunnels
- Bugscope TeamThe pulvillus has what are called 'tenent setae' on it, and the tenent setae stick to surfaces. So yes they walk on it.
- Guestcan flies scratch people with their tarsi
- Guestdo flies poop
- Bugscope TeamOne of the biggest bugs, presently, is a goliath beetle, which is about the size of your fist.
- 8:59 am
- Guestwhat is the most poisonies
Bugscope Teammany insects produce chemicals that are intended to keep ants, especially, away. I am not sure what the most poisonous insect is.
- Bugscope TeamYes flies poop. That is what flyspecks are. It is also called 'frass.'
- Guestdo flys eat human flesh
Bugscope Teammost flies, it seems, have sponging mouthparts; but some have slashing mouthparts that are made to cut your skin so they can get your blood from the wound. Like horseflies.
- Guestcan flies scratch people
- GuestARE FLIES DANGEROUS
- Guestcan like flys suck blood
Bugscope Teamyes they can suck blood. mosquitos are a kind of fly that sucks blood
- Guestdo flys eat human flesh
- GuestDO FLYS POOP FROM THE MOUTH
- Guestdo flies bite?
Bugscope Teamsometimes they bite
- Guesthow do flies pee
Bugscope Teamusually they don't pee as much as poop
- Studenthow long do flies live
- Guestwhat is the most dangourus bug
Bugscope Teamthe most dangerous bugs are the ones that cause bad diseases, like malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, sleeping sickness, west nile virus -- and usually those are mosquitos
- Guestso they pee out of their mouth
- Studentwhat defines a bug
- Guestyou know that bug that the soilders found in iraq and it was long and weird what was it
Bugscope TeamI think it was a centipede, which is not an insect
- GuestHOW DO FLIES MATE WITH EACHOTHER
- Guestwhat is that thing sticking out
Bugscope Teamthat is the tongue, the proboscis
- 9:04 am
- Guestand why is it hairy
Bugscope Teamthe hairs, called setae, are often sensory -- they are used to taste, smell, sense touch, and gauge hot or cold
- Guestwhy is the tongue hairy
- Guestdo flys use the tongue to like people and poison them or something
Bugscope Teamusually flies do not cause problems when they lick people
- Studentwhy do flies have so many eye panels
- Guestdo bugs have skin
Bugscope Teaminsects do not have skin; that is an important distinction and a good question; they have an exoskeleton
- GuestDO FLIES MATE WITH EACHOTHER
Bugscope Teamyes they do; that's how it works
- Guesthow do flies mate
- Guestwhere do flys lay there eggs
- Guestdo flys see in slow motion
- Guestand how do they have babies
Bugscope Teamusually they lay eggs that become maggots
- Studentwhy do flies have so many eye panels
Bugscope Teamthe compound eye gives the insect very good peripheral vision as well as allowing it to sense motion -- changes in the visual field -- very quickly
- Guestdo flys see in color
- Guestcan flies carry diseases
- Guestwhere do they lay there eggs
Bugscope Teamthey lay their eggs in lots of places
- Guestcan a fly kill some one
- Studenth do there eyes work
- GuestHOW BIG ARE THERE EYES
Bugscope Teamyou can get an idea by looking at the scalebar on the lower left of the screen
- Guest how far can like fys see
Bugscope Teamfly's can see really well, very sharp, but I'm not sure how far they can see
- Guestis the thing behind the tongue the throat
Bugscope Teamit's really just an opening; the entrance to the throat would be on the inside of that tubelike tongue
- Guesthow big can a bug grow
- Guestdo lfies have female parts or male parts
Bugscope Teamboth female and male; males often have their eyes closer together and those of females are far apart
- 9:09 am
- Guesthow many types of flies are there in the world
Bugscope Teamthere are thousands upon thousands of fly species in the world
Bugscope Teamthere are over 240,000 different species of flies in the world. the scientific name of fly is Diptera
- Guestwhat els dose fli
- Guestwhat els do flies eat then poop
Bugscope Teamoh, they eat lots of things
- Guestnbkjftjr iy
- Guest do flys see in slow motion?
Bugscope Teamthey see motion change very quickly so you could say that; to us things go very fast but to them it may seem a little slower 'cause they are speeded up
- Guestwhy does it look like that
- Guestwhat is the biggest fly
- Guestdo flies have taste
Bugscope Teamoh yes, flies have sensory hairs, called setae, that help them to sense taste, small and feel things in their environment
- Guestcan flies fart
Bugscope TeamI think so, not sure.
- Guestwhat kind of thing
- GuestIF WE RIP OFF THE WINGS WILL THEY DIE OR SOMTHING LIKE THAT
Bugscope Teamyeah, probably sooner or later
- Studenthow many types of flies live in north america
Bugscope Teamthere are thousands of types in America, and it is likely that not all have been found
- Guestso they fart out of their mouths like they poop and pee
- Guestwhat is the biggest fly
Bugscope Teamcrane flies are pretty big; they look like overgrown mosquitos
- Guestwhen we were looking at the eye of the fly, why was there hair on it
Bugscope Teamthe compound eye has hair on it, they are called setae (see-tee). those setae help to sense wind speed and direction, they are thought to help the insect fly around
- Guestcan flies carry diseases
Bugscope Teamyes they can
- GuestIS THERE SUCH THINGS AS A MEXICAN FLY?
- Guestwhat kind of deasise
Bugscope Teamwell since mosquitos are a type of fly, and tsetse flies are a type of fly there are a lot of diseases they are responsible for. like West Nile Virus, sleeping sickness, malaria, yellow fever...
- Guestwhich would win a fly or misquito
- Studenthow do thier eye panels work
Bugscope Teameach bump on the compound eye is an individual facet, with a lens in it. the facets are called ommatidia. the lens is fixed, can't move around in the socket like a human eyeball can. so that's why they have so many ommatidia pointed in different directions
- Bugscope Teammosquitos also carry disease, very bad ones!
- GuestIS THERE A MEXICAN FLY
- Guestdo flies sneeze
Bugscope Teamthat is a good question, and i don't know the answer!
- 9:14 am
- TeacherCan we turn control over to one of the students?
Bugscope Teamtotally, just tell us who
- Guestcan you die from a flpy
Bugscope Teamnot likely from a normal housefly
- Guestdo flies have ears?
Bugscope Teamthey don't have ears but they are well equipped to sense vibration, and vibration is sound, or sound is vibration
- Teacheresiah, please
- Bugscope Teamesiah, you have control!
- GuestCAN FLIES BEAT UP EACHOTHER??
Bugscope Teamyes they can
- Guestdo other bugs fight
Bugscope Teamyes, and other bugs eat each other as well
- Bugscope Teamall insects, as adults, have six legs; you can see here all six legs of this small fly
- Bugscope Teamflies where little boxing gloves when the fight though... because they are good sports. ;)
- Studentwhat is the biggest and smallest type of fly in the world
Bugscope Teamthere is a fly called a fairy fly that is said to be less than a millimeter in length; I am not sure what qualifies as the largest fly
- Bugscope Teamoops, go a little to the right here
- Guestwhat if you eat a fly
Bugscope Teamthen you have to eat a spider....
- Bugscope Teamthe preset drifted a bit, that happens
Bugscope Teamwell, that's how the fable goes. you don't really have to do that. ;)
- Bugscope Teamflies taste kind of like paper, kind of yucky
- GuestHOW WOULD YOU KNOW HOW A FLE TASTE LIKE
- Guestim a girl
Bugscope Teamoh i'm so sorry, my fault. it's hard to tell by the names sometimes
- Guestwhy are spiders hairy?
Bugscope Teamthe hairs are important because they allow the spider to have very good vibration sensing abilities; often their eyes are not that good
- 9:19 am
- GuestIM A BOY
- Guestwhat is that hair coming from
- Bugscope Teamsadie, everyone eats bugs at some point, by accident. insects are all around us, and they accidentally fly/crawl into our mouths, and we inject them. they are not bad for us though. i hope that doesn't scare you!
- Guestit does
- GuestCant like wasps kill tarantulas or something
Bugscope Teamsome can
- Studentdo goliath bird eating spiders realy eat birds
- Guestwhat are those squares
Bugscope Teamthose were salt crystals
- GuestCAN YOU GET BITE BY SPIDER AND BECOME SPIDER MAN
Bugscope Teamwell, in the movies you can, yes. but not in real life.
- Bugscope Teampreset #7 are salt cubes, from Wendy's
- Bugscope Teamtarantulas also have hairs, called 'urticating hairs,' that they release when you bother them. the hairs make you itch
- Guestif a wasp dies and you touch the stinger will you get stung
- Bugscope Teamit would be kind of gross if you turned into a spider and all of a sudden had spinnerettes
- Guestwhat are dose little circles
- Guestwhat is a spinnerett
Bugscope Teamspinnerettes are the parts of the spider that produce silk, which is the web
- GuestWHATS SPINNERETTES
- Guestif there was a web big enough can it hold us
- Bugscope Teamand you would have nasty big fangs with poison pores, and you would drink your food like a milkshake of the insides of insects
- Guesthow strong can a web be
- GuestTHAT WOULD BE COOL
- Studentwhat is the biggest and smallest type of spider
- Guesthow old do spiders live
Bugscope Teamsome spiders can live up to 25 years in captivity, but in the wild they live max 2-3 years
- Guestcan they run out of web
Bugscope Teamthey recycle their web; they actually eat it and then it presumably becomes web again
- Guestwhats the deadliest bee
- 9:24 am
- Guestwhere do black widdows live
Bugscope Teamblack widows are territorial like a lot of spiders; if one lived in your house it might live under the refrigerator
- GuestSAY SEVERSL BEES STUNG YOU IN THE SAME PLACE WHAT WOULD HAPPEND
Bugscope Teamwell, it would probably be sore. if you were allergic, you should seek medical care ASAP.
- Guestcan they shoot out their web on command
Bugscope Teamyes and the web comes from the spinnerettes; sometimes the web can be not sticky
- Studentwhat is the most poisonous spider
Bugscope Teamsome people say the most poisonous spider is the Brazilian wandering spider; it takes very little venom to kill a mouse
- Guestwhere do black widows live? like in the north south east or west
Bugscope Teamwell, there are northern, western and southern black windows in north america, also some species in europe and australia. so they are kinda all over places where there is desert to temperate like climate.
- Guestwho would win in a fight a black widow or a trancula
Bugscope TeamI don't think they would fight but likely the tarantula
- GuestIS THERE LIKE A FAMOUSE BEE OR SOMTHING
- Guestwat happen if u eat a spider
- Guesthow do bees poop
Bugscope Teamall insects excrete some sort of waste from the food they digest. all organism do that in fact.
- Bugscope Teamspiders have the ability to let, for example, one leg fall off if they sense poison entering it
- Guestcan they live in illinois
Bugscope Teami'm not sure, but i haven't heard about any in illinois so i kinda doubt it
- Guestis it posible for spiders to live in water
- Bugscope TeamI remember by brother had black widows in his apartment in Malibu, in California
- 9:30 am
- Guestwhat is that
Bugscope Teamthat is the wasp's stinger
- Studentthe stinger
- GuestDO SOME INSECTS MIGRATE SOUTH DURING WINTER?
Bugscope TeamMonarch butterflies migrate; most insects do not
- Guestis there a spider that can swim like a snake can
- Bugscope Teamtarantulas can get large but they are fragile -- they can break open, so you have to be careful not to drop them
- Guestcan spiders be fat
Bugscope Teamnot really the way we think of it but some can be better fed than others for sure
- Bugscope Teamthis is a wasp stinger
- Guestwhere do incests go during winter
Bugscope Teama lot of them die seasonally; you can see that some ladybugs go indoors but die anyway; some go under the leaf litter and wait the winter out
- Guestis there a spider more dangerous that a black widow
- Guestwhat is the biggest bee
- Bugscope Teamnote that the stinger has ridges on the side, that means the stinger will stick into the prey, and probably is a sting once only type deal. although that's odd because i thought wasps could sting multiple times?
- Guesthow long can a bee stinger be
Bugscope Teamthe stingers of some hornets can be quite long, like at least a centimeter
- Guesthow does the stinger sting people
Bugscope Teamwell, the wasp uses the stinger to sting people. it sits on it's prey, and then inserts the stinger
- GuestIF YOU BREAKE A WASP WILL THEY DIE
Bugscope Teamyes it will die
- Guestwhere do bees go during winter?????
- Guestin the winter would incests die because there is no avabile food for them to eat
Bugscope Teamthey might just shut down, go dormant for the winter, like hibernating; but most die in a climate like ours
- GuestWHAT IS A WASP NORMALTEMPERTURE
- Guestdo bees always die after they sting something
Bugscope Teamsome bees die and some can sting again
- 9:35 am
- Studentdo all wasps die when there stingers are removed
- Teachercan you switch the control to sadie?
- Guestwho whould win in a fight a bee or a wasp
- Bugscope Teamsadielovesmomo, you have control
- Guestwhat is the cemical that when wasps sting you can it locates you and others can find you too?
Bugscope Teamnot sure; it has to be some kind of pheromone
- GuestIF YOU BREAK THE WASP STINGER WILL IT DIE
- Bugscope Teamhoneybees die when they sting because they leave the stinger in your skin, and it has a little pump attached to it; it is like breaking off a part of their body that they cannot do without
- Guesthow long does it take to build a beehive?????
- GuestIF A BEE BREATHS IN SMOKE DO THEY GET THE SAME EFEECTS AS A HUMMAN
Bugscope Teambees probably don't live long enough to get a disease like canacer
- Guestwat happens if you eat a bee
Bugscope Teamlikely you would get stung if it was still alive, and your tongue might swell up
- Bugscope Teamcancer, that is
- Bugscope Teamthis is the mouth of a ladybug
- Guestwould something happen to you if get stung by a bee or a wasp if the stinger gets stuck in you for at least a year or more
- Guestas a queen in the bee hive dose it have to mate with all males in the hive or dose it make eggs by itself
Bugscope Teamsome of the males will mate with the queen and some will not; some bee queens, I believe, do not need to have mated to produce offspring
- Bugscope Teamladybugs eat other insects
- Studentif a wasps nest was for some unknown was next to a bee hive what would happen
- Bugscope Teamalmost looks like it's eating another insect
- Guestcan ladybugs bite
- Guestwat happens if a qeen bee dies
Bugscope Teama new queen will be groomed to take over
Bugscope Teamack, that would bad. the queen controls the nest.
- 9:40 am
- GuestCAN BUGS LIVE IN A FREEZER
Bugscope Teamnot the ones we get, although some of them can be frozen for awhile and then wake up when they warm up
- Bugscope Teamah, i didn't know a new queen would be found. that's cool scott, thanks
- Guestdo lady bugs have babies or eggs
- Guestwhen wasps get mad at you why dose it allways want to sting you
Bugscope Teamit is just trying to protect itself, or the colony
- Studenthow many bees are in a bee hive
- GuestCAN BEES BREATH UNDERWATER
Bugscope Teamthey cannot breathe under water
- Guesthow big can a queen be get
- Guestcould bugs live in a volcano or outer space
Bugscope Teamum, i don't think outer space would work for an insect, maybe a volcano, but not in the lava though. i'm not sure anything can live in molten lava
- Guestwhat animal eats wasps
Bugscope Teambears, for one; probably mice, rats, weasels...
- Guestwouldent it hurt them
Bugscope Teamactually a bear would eat bees if they were in the way of her or him eating honey; they probably don't care about wasps
- Guestyellow jackets do they hate the wasps
- GuestHOW LONG CAN A JUNE BUG LIVE
Bugscope Teamusually just a few weeks, I think
- Guesthow often do cicadas come out
Bugscope Teamsome are on a 17-year cycle; some are on a 13-year cycle; and I bet there are other variations
- GuestIS IT TRUE THTA THERE IS A BUG THAT LIVE FOR LIKE MILLIONS OF YEARS????!!
Bugscope Teamthe kinds of 'bugs' that live for millions of years, potentially, are bacteria, which of course are not really bugs; fleas can last many years as larvae
- 9:45 am
- Guestisnt there a 4 year one
Bugscope TeamTrent I am not sure.
- Studentwhy is it that rare
- Guest if cicadeas come out only for 13-17 years then what do they do
- Guestwhat are the things on the antena
Bugscope Teamthose are pores that we think help the beetle taste the air and sense pheromones
- Guestcan a insect mate with a nother insect like a fly wiwith
- Bugscope Teamthere is a cool theory about who cicadas have a prime number life cycle. they think it might be because they are trying to avoid the life cycle of other predators, and if their life cycle is a prime number, then they will have less frequent encounters with the predator, which may be on an even number life cycle. if the predator comes up every two years, but the cicadas every 17, then the predator may die out because it has no cicadas to eat for many of its life cycles
- Guestwhat are those circle thing
Bugscope Teamwe think they are chemosensory pits
- Guestcan a insect mate with a nother insect like a fly with a junebug
Bugscope Teamnot really; it just does not work, and neither one is interested in mating with the other
- Bugscope Teamthere are many parasitic wasps that lay their eggs in particular species of caterpillars
- GuestCAN AN INSECT MATE WIT A SPECIES THATS NOT THE SAME AS THEM
- GuestDONT SOME SPIDERS EAT THERE BABIES
Bugscope Teamyes sometimes
- 9:51 am
- Guestwhat are chelicerae's on spider
Bugscope Teamthey are the mouthparts that make the fangs work; they open and close like jaws and have fangs at the termini.
- Bugscope Teamwe have see one of those female spiders with a ball of web holding her chelicerae together
- Guestwhat is your favorite bug
Bugscope TeamI like earwigs because they often have mites for us to see.
Bugscope Teami kinda like mites, because they are bugs on other bugs
- Guesthow many times does a bug eat
Bugscope Teamit depends on the bug; some insects never eat once they become adults; they just mate and die
- GuestWHATS A CHELICERAE
Bugscope Teammouthparts that open and close
- Bugscope Teampillbugs are also cool, they have a kind of zen coolness about them
- Bugscope Teamalthough pillbugs are not really insects, they are a terrestrial crustacean
- Studenthow did that mith get started then
Bugscope Teammaybe someone saw an earwig come out of someone's ear in the way way old days
- Guesthow many times a day does a bug eat
Bugscope Teamwell, a lot more than humans i would think. their life span is a lot shorter. but some insects can also go a while without ingesting food
- Bugscope Teamearwigs are plant pests and don't mess with people unless they bother them
- Guestcan you become death because of a earwig
Bugscope TeamI don't think so.
- Guestwhen the spiders mate and the girl eats the dude why is that good because then they will have no babies
Bugscope Teamwell if they mate before she eats him then she gets fertilized and can successfully lay eggs as well as getting a dinner out of the deal
- 9:56 am
- Guestdoes a earwig eat youe earwax
Bugscope Teamno they are plant pests and don't seem interested in people
- TeacherCan kiki have a try at control?
- Guestwhat r those things sticking out by the eyes
Bugscope Teamsome of those things are spines, and you may also see the antennae
- Bugscope Teamkiwi, you have control!
- Guestlike humans inbreading has a great affect on babies so what if bugs has to do that
Bugscope TeamI imagine it does have an effect eventually; it weakens the ability for the species to survive because it has fewer genes
- Bugscope Teamlike to the right, those are antennae
- Guestwhy are their hairs on it
Bugscope Teamthose hairs help them sense their environment. they are called setae (see-tee)
- Bugscope Teamthose setae (hairs) can sense movement, smell, taste, wind, temperature, etc.
- Bugscope Teamsetae are kind of like superfied cat whiskters...
- Guestwhat is this????
- Guesthas any bugs been captured on tape killing its own brothers and sister?
Bugscope Teamsome bugs are very aggressive and would do that, perhaps assassin bugs, for example
- Guestor dose t
- Bugscope Teamthe stuff to the right is carbon doublestick tape
- 10:01 am
- Guestdo bugs have ears
Bugscope Teamwell, not like humans have ears. but bugs can sense sound through vibrations, using their hairs (setae) or their bodies. sounds is really just vibration in the air.
- Guestdo flys take care oof there babys or just leave them
Bugscope Teamthey just leave them as eggs that become maggots
- Guestwhat is the differentce in bugs acracnids and inceacts
Bugscope Teamfirst, arachnids have eight legs as adults, and insects have six
- Guestin all bgs wich lives longest
- Guestand what about bugs
Bugscope Teamtrue bugs are a type of insect called hemiptera that have piercing/sucking mouthparts. stinkbugs are true bugs
- Studentwhat do yuo mean as adults
Bugscope Teamwhen they are young, for example, ticks may have six legs
- Guest if the presidentgets bit by a misqueto is it a presidentul misqueto
Bugscope Teamyes I think so; that is pretty funny
- Guestwhat r those pointy things
Bugscope Teamthose are spines on the edge of a fly wing
- Guestwhat hpeneds if a fly bites a president does it make it a presidntieal fly
Bugscope Teamyes a presidential fly
- Studentdo you guys specialize in different bugs
Bugscope Teamit is sad but we realize we know so little about insects; the more you study them the more fascinating they are but the more we realize how little we know
- Guestare ticks bugs
Bugscope Teamticks are related to spiders; they are arachnids
- 10:07 am
- Guestare fly wings as fragile as butterfly wings? like if you touch their wings can they use it anymore
Bugscope Teamthey are likely not as fragile
- Bugscope Teamfly wings, except those of mosquitos, do not have scales like butterfly and moth wings
- Guestwhen a tick bite someone what are the chemicals that dosent make you feel the bite
Bugscope Teamthey have some kind of anesthetic; I am not sure what it is. they also probably have something like heparin that keeps the blood from clotting
- Bugscope Teamthe scales come off easily and seem like powder to us
- Teachersomething funky is happening with our computers right now.
Bugscope Teamum can you refresh the screens; are they not working?
- Guestthanks for the answers but i still have like 2 more about ticks
- Studentis it true that if you are being bit by a tic it can submerge itself in your body
Bugscope Teamonly the head part called the capitulum sticks into your skin
- Bugscope TeamTrent!
- Guestif a tick bites you is it true that the bite can look like a grape
Bugscope Teamthe tick looks like a grape as it fills with blood
Bugscope Teamno problem we are more worried about what Ms S said
- Guestwhen ticks bite dose it leave get attacked by the white blood cells or something
Bugscope Teamthe area of the wound may attract WBCs, but the tick itself is not attacked by WBCs
- Studenthow do tics get on you do they jump or fall
Bugscope Teamthey hold their arms out and catch your skin or clothes as you walk by; they make that easier by climbing to the tips of long leaves of grass, for example. and ticks have little open hooks that they can use to perch on leaves
- 10:12 am
- Teachera few of the students have logged off, but there are several others that would like a try at controlling the 'scope. can you switch it to yfz?
- Guestwhen ticks have filled with blood like a deer tick dose it lay eggs or dose it have to mate with the opposite sex
Bugscope TeamI think they have already mated, but I am not sure; they go through a few cycles
- Bugscope Teamyfz has it
- Bugscope TeamI just moved us to this fly claw
- Guestty for the answers some have been itching at me for days
- Bugscope Teambut you are welcome to drive
- Bugscope Teamthis is on a silverfish
- Bugscope Teamyfz is driving now
- Guesto im not
- Bugscope Teamsilverfish have scales like butterflies, moths, some weevils, and mosquitos
- Bugscope Teamthat is the head of the silverfish
- Bugscope Teampointed downward
- 10:17 am
- Guestis it a bad bug
Bugscope TeamIt eats things in your house but I am not sure how bad it is; I don't like them, though
- Guestdose it eat cloths like moths
- Bugscope Teamit is cool doing Bugscope because it means we can catch the insects we find and use them for this.
- Guestlol yeah
- Guestesiah can drive now
- Guestwell do you guys have other websites
Bugscope Teamjust our home page: itg.uiuc,edu
- Bugscope Teamesiah has control now
- Bugscope TeamI mean itg.uiuc.edu
- Studentwait what kind of bug is this
- Studentwhat are those
- Bugscope Teamyou can see photos of us on the bugscope site
- Bugscope Teamthis is a silverfish, which is an insect
- Guestlike pic of u guys
Bugscope Teamyeah you can see us, although today it's just been me and Alex
- Studentlooks like scales
Bugscope Teamyes they are, and they are certainly responsible for the silver color you see
- Studentwhat are the hair looking things
Bugscope Teamthose are sensory setae
- Guestdo u know what the silver fish was named after?
Bugscope Teamno I imagine it looked like a fish to someone
- Guestwho els is there
Bugscope TeamCate, Chas, Annie, Rob... Claudi
- Guestwhats this
Bugscope Teamthis is the surface of the compound eye of the wasp, I think, and you can see some pollen grains on it
- 10:22 am
- TeacherI think we are going to need to wrap up this session in about five minutes.
Bugscope TeamCool we are having fun but will let you go when you're ready.
- Studentwhat is this
Bugscope Teamthose round things are a type of pollen grain
- Guestare you guys on 24/7
Bugscope Teamno just a few sessions a week, no more than two now, sometimes three
- Bugscope Teamthe hexagons are the surface of the compound eye
- Teacherthis has been awesome for the students! (and for me!!!) you were able to answer so many more questions than i would have been able to
- Studentccan you go on here with a normal computer
Bugscope Teamyes as long as you have an internet connection
- Teachera few of the teachers from our school came in to observe and take part today...they will be contacting you soon to set up dates for the school year =)
Bugscope Teamgood deal
- Bugscope Teamyou can log on as guest, for example
- Studentwhat happens if your elergic to a bee and it stings you
Bugscope Teamyou could die if you go into shock
- Guestdo you guys get paid for this because that would be cool
Bugscope Teamit is part of our job; in a way we volunteer for this but most of us also get paid to be here
- Bugscope Teamremember, that all the chat and images from today's session are saved to your member page: http://bugscope.beckman.illinois.edu/members/2009-079
