Why Learn about Insects? with Rob Bixler Date and time: October 17, 2018; 7:30-8:30pm EST
Negative experiences with insects so strongly shape young peoples’ perceptions that even the best efforts of environmental educators sometimes fail. But a wide variety of personal, community and societal benefits can emerge if we can find more ways to focus our students’ attention on the lowly, creepy critters that most people just call “bugs.” Bugs should and can be the ideal means of teaching many environmental education concepts to elementary age children.
There is no charge for participating, and each session can be freely viewed for 30 days after the live session.
