Join science educator Laura Poppick on a family field trip to a biology lab at the University of Southern Maine in Portland! USM biologist Dave Champlin will lead us through a series of interactive science experiments exploring the incredible lives of caterpillars and moths. We’ll hold and handle caterpillars at different life stages, learn how to use basic scientific tools, and create an observational art project. We’ll also have time to explore dozens of other preserved natural specimens in the lab, and take a tour of the science building!
$2 per person. Recommended for ages 5+.
