The Project

Project Title Bug Unit
Insects To Study Bees, Flies, Moths, Ants
Project Description My students are very motivated by both technology and visual experiences. Bugscope, which I experienced in my teacher licensure program, would bring science to them in a novel and relevant way--which is so important since school (academics and social interactions) is often very difficult for them. We would study local bugs, the life cycle of bugs, and the importance of bugs leading up to the experience. After, we would use it to write, create art, and have scientific conversations--this will be so much easier with the live, engaging experience of Bugscope. Bugscope would be integrated into our Bugs unit in science.
