Join the Bug Club!

No matter where you are in the state (or world), you can join the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Bug Club!  We are meeting virtually, once a week, March through May.

Fall was our first Bug Club series, and back by popular demand, we have developed a Spring series! 

Bug Club is an opportunity for youth interested in entomology and insects to learn more about them through interactive, live, virtual lessons with Entomologist, Molly Keck.  For those who cannot make live lessons, Monday’s @ 4pm, you can watch the recorded versions! 


Bug Club runs March 1st – May 10th (9 total lessons).  Clubbers receive a kit containing materials for activities and experiments, mailed to their home.  Cost for registration is $50.

This Spring we’ll cover Honey Bees and their importance, learn about their lifecycle and how the caste system and bee dances work, and wrap it up with a virtual visit into a real bee hive!  We’ll also study mosquitoes and understand where they like to breed, why they are so bad, and how they have shaped our national history with a lesson on Yellow Fever.  As it warms up in May, we’ll talk insect collections, ant species, how to use dichotomous keys, and more!

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

Space is limited and we did fill up in the fall, so don’t wait too late to register!
