On May 17, the BCTC Natural Sciences Division Outreach Committee will be hosting the first Family Science Program “Science Safari: Bugs and Blooms” at the Newtown Campus. This program was made possible by a grant from the Battelle Foundation. This would also be a great opportunity for Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and other youth organizations.
This program will be the first of four FREE outreach activities planned for Newtown in the next year. Bugs and Blooms will have students dissecting flowers, planting seeds, eating some insects (meal worms and crickets in a variety of yummy flavors), looking at insect and flowers using the Scanning Electron Microscope on loan from Hitachi, worm farms, doing some termite experiments and a live insect collection. There is something for everyone of all ages.
