|Title:||Flickering, Flashing Fireflies
Scientists that study insects are called Entomologists. So come along, young entomologists, and let’s investigate fireflies! We will study these bright little insects' life cycle, take a close look at their body structure, and discover why they flash.
For this experience, students will need paper, pencil, scissor, and a gluestick.
