Come and "BUG" out with us at the greatest Insect Expo the world has ever seen. Mark your calendars now for the Entomological Foundations's 2016 Insect Expo September 28, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.
More than 4,000 children are expected to attend! The one-day event is where you need to bring your kids excited about science through insects. They can hold a live insect, paint with termites, see how far they can spit a cricket, or eat a fried meal worm!
The 2016 Entomological Foundation Insect Expo is FREE and open to the public. While everyone is welcome, the Expo is likely to be of the greatest interest to kids in grades 2-6. School groups are encouraged to sign up in advance in order to best manage the event. Contact Chris Stelzig at cstelzig[at]entsoc[dot]org with any questions.
