The Project

Project Title Comparison of Arthropod Appendages
Insects To Study Tick, moth?, spider?
Project Description I would like to use the Bugscope to view the specialized structures of assorted arthropods. In biology we study arthropods, and one of our state's standards requires students to compare specialized adaptations of organisms. The Bugscope project would allow us to meet that requirement and do so in a way that utilizes our technology here at our school. We have received state grants for technology and must incorporate the use of smartboards, video conferencing, etc. into our curriculum. The Bugscope project project is a perfect activity to incorporate the two needs into one incredibly interesting opportunity for our remote, rural school.
