Title MicroWorld
Insects Not sure yet
Description I am a naturalist at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. We have a 10 week summer camp program with 5 different topics of which one of them this year is MicroWorlds. We actually have 3 classes -- 5 and 6 year olds, 7 and 8 year olds, and 9 to 12 year olds. We would set up Bugscope as a station that all three classes would be able to go through. We will be studing microscopy and using microscopes to look into soil and water as well as at insects, leaves, etc. It would be great to be able to actually see some of our abundant supply of bugs under such a magnification. The dates I listed are the two weeks of our summer camp. Even is we could get a date during the June week, we could at least look at the transcript for our second week.


Where did you hear
about Bugscope?
I found Bugscope while looking for lessons for my Spring class on bugs.
