Teachers workshop at the International Congress of Entomology in Orlando

August 25, 2016

School teachers from Florida and other states are invited to attend a workshop on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida (Rooms W2224 G&H in the west concourse of the center). STEMbugs, a workshop for primary and secondary school educators, will show teachers how to develop new lesson plans involving the use of insects in the classroom as teaching tools.

Topics will include:

STEMbugs attendees will receive:

For more information, visit http://www.entfdn.org/pr_workshop.html or contact Chris Stelzig at cstelzig@entsoc.org or 301-731-4535, ext 3012.

Spaces are limited to the first 150 participants.

The STEMbugs workshop is sponsored by the Entomological Foundation, which exists to develop the next generation of entomologists by hosting projects and events designed to help educators and parents foster a child's natural curiosity about the world around them.

STEMbugs will be held in conjunction with the 2016 International Congress of Entomology, the largest gathering of insect scientists in history. ICE 2016 will be held September 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, and will feature thousands of presentations. Topics will include Zika and other arboviruses, citrus greening disease, integrated pest management, science communication, insects as food and feed (entomophagy), arthropod genomics, and many more.
