PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Scientists that study insects are called Entomologists. So come along, young entomologists, and let’s investigate fireflies! We will study these bright little insects' life cycle, take a close look at their body structure, and discover why they flash.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE
This live interactive program is held within our Science Investigate Zone and includes the use of our high-end microscope and a hands-on activity. We always leave plenty of time for questions, too! For the mini-glowworm activity, you will need a piece of paper (construction paper is best), scissors, glue/glue stick, and a pencil. Instructions will be sent upon registration.
