Term 1: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday
Term 2: Wednesday–Friday
Maximum 30 students
In the Bugs, Bugs, Bugs hands-on program, students examine the external features of real insects, spiders and other arthropods, using a hand lens to sort and classify them scientifically and learn about classification. Students will also learn how museum scientists look after the insect collection.
Students will engage with science inquiry skills and become ‘scientists’ when they observe specimens to make predictions about what is a bug, what is an insect and how is a spider different to an insect.
This interactive 30-minute program is recommended as an introduction for groups from Kinder, Foundation, and Level 1–3 before visiting the Bugs Alive! exhibition.
We recommend an additional 30 minutes for exhibition viewing time.
