Are you insect-fully inspired? 

Children will build on their knowledge and interest of insects in this program. Found below our feet, above our heads and in front of our faces - Insects are found everywhere in the world. But where is "home"? 

Children will enjoy 2 hours of hands-on investigation and problem solving, taking a closer look at where insects call home, what attracts insects to different environments and the important role of insects in our survival. Children will make their own bug hotel from loose parts to invite insects into their own garden and make insect-inspired art to take home. 

Bring your curiosity with you this Spring!

Age: 5 – 12 years
