Young entomologists light up as they meet friendly live bugs! Some of the critters stay safely in their clear containers as curious eyes observe closely and many of the bugs are touched and held.
– Live Bugs: millipedes, beetles, Madagascar hissing cockroach, crickets and superworms – Live Arachnids: tarantula and scorpion – Preserved Framed Bugs: variety of butterflies, moths and insects
Your Bug Zoo in-school field trip is designed for no more than 35 students to keep presentations engaging and hand-on. One of our STEAM City team members sets up a fold out table with supplies. It is best if students sit in chairs in a large semi-circle so everyone may see clearly and touch animals easily. Students may also sit on the floor. We recommend reserving one room for your in-school field trip and each group rotates. We are flexible if a central location with chairs is unavailable and will discuss different options to accommodate your school schedule location.
Presentations may be setup in a classroom, media center, gym, auditorium, library or cafeteria. If an indoor room is not available, the outdoor area must be in the shade with a limit of 3 hours in one day. Temporary tents blow in the wind and shaded areas from trees eventually turn to sunny sports. Please reserve space under a permanent pavilion type structure. If more than 3 hours are needed, we will schedule another day to complete the in-school field trip. The limit on the time outdoors is for the wellbeing of the presenters and animals.
