Insect Discovery | Field Trip Dates

Insect Discovery programming is automatically included on the field trip dates below!

ALTERED FOR COVID SAFETY

Compared to previous years, this program has been altered and abbreviated to better align with COVID-19 mitigation strategies. Instead of a separate workshop experience in a somewhat confined space, this semester's demonstrations and activities take place in the Wild World of Bugs portion of the much larger exhibit hall. Programming is also designed to be shorter in order to reduce the amount of time students spend in one area. Please refer to our COVID-19 protocols for information regarding our related safety policies.

 

ABOUT INSECT DISCOVERY
Insect Discovery programs are designed to teach elementary students science concepts through hands-on activities using live and preserved insects. These will be short demonstrations and activities that will kick off your Flandrau field trip!

Sponsored by the Department of Entomology in collaboration with the Arizona Cooperative Extension, these inquiry-based activities address topics such as biological diversity, adaptation, and life cycles. College students in related programs will be your hosts for these mini-workshops.

Registering for a field trip during a time slot listed below will automatically include the modified Insect Discovery experience to your field trip at no additional cost

Want to see a planetarium show too?

 

Register for a planetarium show on the same date (one hour before or after your exhibit time)

Example: Register for 9AM science exhibits and then register for a "10AM Show" on the same date.

Keep in mind, you pick the show! "Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure" is a good fit with Insect Discovery.
