On Thursday, Jan. 31, Arizona Museum of Natural History, 53 N. Macdonald in Mesa, is collaborating with ASU Franz Insect Laboratory to bring a special program to homeschoolers about bugs.  Going Buggy Homeschool Day features a series of fun and factual activities, games and crafts focused on the life cycles, habitats, and eating habits of bugs!  For example, participants will have the opportunity to meet scientists, engage with a virtual InsectARium, and take part in a Buzz Lab to discuss “good bugs” and “bad bugs.”
           
Going Buggy Homeschool Day provides a unique hands on learning experience that is sure to capture the imagination, and bring out the biologist in any child. The program will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $2 for museum members and $6 for non-members.  Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, please contact Alice Jung at (480) 644-3553 or alice.jung@mesaaz.gov.   For more information about the Arizona Museum of Natural History, visit http://www.azmnh.org.
