One event on April 11, 2021 at 2:00pm

Need help getting your team ready for Science Olympiad? Students will meet outside with interpreters who engage students with a variety of interactive study tools. Content focus: visually recognizing and identifying the characteristics (basic biology and anatomy) of each listed Arthropod Class and Insect Order, Linnaean classification, dichotomous keys, and Arthropod life cycles.  We will also hold a “mock event” (2 stations) for students to get comfortable with the station rotation process.  Participants will also go on a guided hike to learn techniques for finding insect specimens. Social distancing and face coverings are required.

Ages 8 – 11.

Time: 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. & 2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Cost: $5 per student
