Virtual Saturday Family Science
Saturday, May 30, 10am
As the days get warmer we come out of our houses, and insects are coming out too! But what makes an animal an insect? What role do insects play in our world and how are they important to people? For this Saturday Science we will learn about the adaptations, life cycles and ecology of one of the most successful groups of animals on earth.
