Orlando Science Center Hosts Teacher Workshops on Life Science
More than 60 Orlando Teachers Learning How to Make Science Come Alive With Bugs!
Saturday, October 22
Sessions at 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Orlando Science Center
Presented by Terminix, Audubon Institute and the Orlando Science Center
Who: Over 60 teachers from all over Orlando attending workshops with Brenda Walkenhurst, Director of Education at the Audubon Institute. They are learning a new life science curriculum with free lesson plans developed around the new exhibit, Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World!
What: Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World! is an exhibit developed by Terminix with the Audubon Insectarium that uses audio, video, live insects and more to give guests a better appreciation for the impact these tiny creatures have on our lives. Explore freestanding habitats such as a cropland, forest, meadow, swamp and even a house to see how insects impact their surroundings, the environment and ultimately human lives.
Terminix has developed a life science curriculum available for local teachers to use in collaboration with field trip visits to the Orlando Science Center to see this one-of-kind interactive exhibit. Plus, they will learn about opportunities to utilize insect experts that will bring live bugs to their own classrooms.
