Project Description The Transition Year girls have already some familiarity with Bugscope as it is on the school website since the last project in 2004. They collected some spiders today which we will post to you. We will spend some time in January learning about insects in general and the Electron Microscope using the Bugscope site. We would like to have your web address to send to our filtering software to make sure we have permission to make contact with you.
