SummaryFrom bumblebee basics to the hidden lives of Madagascar hissing cockroaches, learn about the amazing world of arthropods from Woodland Park Zoo, and then meet one in person!
DescriptionFrom deep oceans to freezing waters of the arctic to the highest mountain peaks, and even our own homes, there is no environment on earth where arthropods can’t be found. Crustaceans, insects, and arachnids: these animals make up the majority of species on our planet but still we know so very little about their lives! Two arthropod species from the zoo will help us show that no matter where or what they are, arthropods have tools to help them survive and thrive. For ages 5 and up.

This program is part of this year’s Summer of Learning program Splash! Adventures with Water, which encourages reading and activities around science, technology, technology, arts and math.
