Science communicator Jayde Lovell sits down with NYSCI’s Public Programs Manager, Erin Thelen, to find out more about NYSCI’s annual Bug Day – held this year on Saturday July 11, 2015.
Bug tastings, a carnivorous plant workshop, and of course, live bugs, are all part of the fun at this one-day event! Kids and parents can learn about and handle a variety of bugs, including an array of insects and spiders presented by members of the New York City Entomological Society, as well as NYSCI’s own hissing cockroaches. Visitors can also partake in a carnivorous plant workshop to learn about plants that eat bugs or meet a local beekeeper and sample some honey. For those who crave something more adventurous, they can eat some bugs at NYSCI’s Bug Café and taste different bug-based products and learn about entomophagy, the practice of eating insects. Free with NYSCI admission.
Bug Week: This year, we’re extending the buggy fun to a week of insect-related activities. From July 6 – 10, as you’re exploring NYSCI’s exhibits, be on the lookout for special bug tabletop activities, videos and even some live bugs. Free with NYSCI admission.
