Sponsored by the Department of Entomology in collaboration with the Arizona Cooperative Extension and 4-H, Insect Discovery is an outreach program designed to teach elementary students science concepts through hands-on activities using live and preserved insects. Workshop stations are inquiry-based activities that address topics such as biological diversity, adaptation, and life cycles. In addition to field trips, the program provides classroom visits, outreach events, teacher training and lesson plans.
