Project Description This is Aaron again. I've decided to do Bugscope with all my 7th grade classes (5). We have purposes for each project and will submit a separate application for each. My times for each class are locked in but the dates are very flexible. The soon the better in my date times. Also, all times are in PST(2 hours behind). We will stay in PST until October 5th when we will be on MST(1 hour behind). Students would like to look at a variety of insect and arachnid body patterns and look for connections and descriptions of their functionality. They will be taking notes and drawings during Bugscope that they will use after with the website pictures and script to write an Analysis and Conclusion. I'll be sending three more applications for a total of 5. Thanks!

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I've participated in Bugscope several times. I've worked with Alex and had a brilliant time each session. I look forward to more.
