Science Action Club: Bug Safari Kit

(ships from manufacturer, est arrival 10/13/22)


A Science Action Club kit makes it easy and fun to lead hands-on STEM in afterschool and summer programs—no experience necessary. Through games, projects, and exciting investigations, youth explore nature, contribute to authentic science research, and design creative strategies to protect the planet.

With content from a world-class science museum and research institution, the kit includes easy-to-follow activity plans, a complete set of STEM supplies, and 2-hour online, self-paced, professional development training for staff. The training provides step-by-step guidance for all 12 activities in the unit, as well as important science concepts and helpful strategies for teaching STEM in an informal learning environment.

With Bug Safari, youth will explore small creatures with big environmental impacts. On local field expeditions, youth will search for arthropods, collect specimens, and post photographs to iNaturalist—a citizen science project and online social network for nature research. Tapping into the global scientific community, youth will use real tools and technology to learn the basics of bug science and what it means to be an entomologist.
