Summer Science Week: The Science of Bugs and Slugs


Monday, July 15, 2019, 9:30am to 12:00pm


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Experience science hands-on through the lens of the two most diverse animal groups - gastropods (snails and slugs) and arthropods (insects, arachnids and relatives). Learn about the range of diversity and variation in these groups, while learning about how these amazing animals go about their daily lives. We will dissect a snail to take a closer look at its teeth, learn how to pin a preserved insect, and get up close and personal with shells, mucus, exoskeletons, webs, and wings! Taught by biology graduate student Vanessa Knutson.

For students entering grades 6-8

Monday through Friday, July 15-19

Advance registration is required.

Fees: $160 members/$180 nonmembers
