We are pleased to announce our newest initiative for bringing the BUGS to every school we can!

Now you can have a whole school day full of BUGS for only $500.

What do we do on a BUG day? Whatever you want us to.

star Individual classrooms star
We can arrange a visit to classrooms at a particular grade level or with particular teachers and present our Joy of BUGS! Programs. Generally, this will include up to six one-hour programs in different classes (up to 30 students), dependent on the school schedule.
- Regular price: 5 classrooms ... $120/class (after 20% discount) = $600
- Savings: $100

star Auditorium presentations star
These larger audience programs include our original, live-narrated BUG Videos. Your students will see amazing BUGS and BUG behaviors we could never show them in person and learn about what we’re watching through fun, funny and memorable stories by our BUG-People.
- Regular price: 4 Auditorium Presentations @ $160/program (after 20% discount) = $640
- Savings: $140

star Festival- type table set-ups star
Our Observation Station set-up includes amazing BUGS in custom enclosures with interesting and informative signage. This presentation is designed for festival type events when students (and their families, perhaps) have other activities and demonstrations to attend and can visit our table for as long or as short as they wish. Some stop by for a few minutes, others stay for hours!

star Outdoor interpretations star
We can present modified versions of BUGMANIA!, our outdoor BUG experience to accommodate your school grounds. If you have a nice garden, we can help your students appreciate and understand it in new ways. If you have a nice, natural area close to your school grounds, we can lead a natural history exploration to introduce them to their natural neighbors. And if you only have a playground and parking lot, we know lots of ‘games’ and other ways to explore the natural world living there (there are always ants!)

Our knowledgeable BUG-People and versatile curriculums will challenge any students from kindergarten through collegiate classes! We will assess our audiences and adjust our subject matter to the grade/standards appropriate level. Or you can dictate the topics we cover. Some of the topics we have presented (not an exhaustive list) include:

star The Green BUG Lessons - what we can learn from BUGS about living on Earth
