Just had a great #STEM /#STEAM event @ FTE CEEL! Thanks for having us and thanks to an awesome prep crew and outreach team! @pakdamie, @EntomosOswin,@TheOleBlue and Brandon G helped me make the materials just in time!
coordinated student effort, got the booklets to print correctly, and also kept me from losing it!(and apparently successfully avoided my camera)
rocked the insect recyclers theme with Bess beetles, superworms, and later a glitter paper beetle in her shoulder
wowed the kids with insect habitats, both terrestrial and aquatic
Shelby (twitter handle ?) showed the kids the different lifecycles and stages of insects and brought bee-utiful photos
drew kids into an insect circle time to talk about foodwebs (antlions, tarantulas, walking sticks)
opened the eyes to the concept that mosquitoes aren’t just pests and vectors—they can also pollinate flowers!
Emily E was a hit with mimics: bees and flies, butterflies and also live walking sticks, dead leaf mantis nymph, and the beautiful Spiny Flower mantis!
At the Art table making led cards topped with origami insects or coloring pages were @hillary_d_morin and @emilylsandall.
Finally got to play with robots in public AND get kids excited about insects and coding at the same time! (No pics of me because I don’t do self photos). I’ve been told the kids and teachers really love you all and would like us to come back!
Ooh, almost forgot: This event was funded by the PSU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs grant for STEM outreach to @mmlopezu @emilylsandall and me. This was a test for future venues do our upcoming class on #publicengagementwithscience in Fall 2018
I just realized I didn’t thanks one other person, who cut the bases of the LED cards for me! Thanks @dchote!
