Assembly Programs
– We show BUGS to large groups with video!

• BUGS doing things we could never show them doing in person
• content-rich, grade-level appropriate and memorable (and funny)
• use your projector/AV setup or our 40" flatscreen TV

Classroom Programs – Live BUGS with smaller groups!

• 45 minutes-1 hour interactive lesson 
• most effective with groups up to 30 students
• observe and handle live BUGS

We coordinate the schedule with your school day

  • for example, two large assemblies and all the 3rd grade classrooms, or five classroom programs, or four assemblies only.
  • Our BUGS and content are useful and aligned with modern standards for all grade levels, from Pre-K through Grad School!

Topics covered - at least! (we can coordinate content with you by request)

  • Habitats and Homes (Ecology)
  • Respect = Look Again (Scientific thinking)
  • Seasonal Cycles (Scientific explanations and observations)
  • Comparative animal behavior and biology,

  • and, mostly… Look how amazing your World is!!
