The Project

Project Title A Comparitive Study of Predatory Water Insects
Insects To Study Diving Beetles, Dragon/Damsel-fly nymphs
Project Description I would like to use the Bugscope in conjunction with our annual study of trout and the environment they live in. The students will examine the insect predators of the trout they raise in the classroom and release in a local stream. The project would compare the mouth parts of some particularly voracious predators of trout fry. This study will help the students receive an understanding of the trout and their envirnoment.
