‘ONLINE’ Beaty@Home Live: Big Bugs

Join Vincent, Museum Interpreter, for another virtual visit live from the Discovery Lab as we take a look at some of our big bugs! Get an up close look at specimens of some of the largest insects on earth including the Goliath beetle and the Atlas moth. Big and small, the Beaty Museum is home to many amazing entomology specimens.

This specimen-focused chat with a museum interpreter is recommended for visitors of all ages! If your child hasn’t used zoom before, or needs help with typing, occasional support from an adult or older sibling may be helpful. You’ll have opportunity to ask questions if you join us live!

Join all of the Beaty@Home sessions from anywhere around the world. All you need is an internet connection. You can join us on Zoom or on Facebook live! You can also call in over telephone, simply register below for the Zoom link and the list of numbers. Click here to register!
