Touch a Bug, Make a Friend!

Today PI Meuti and Graduate Student Caitlin Peffers visited Medina Middle School, a Columbus public school serving diverse and immigrant students. We first shared some information on how we became interested in entomology, our educational and career paths, as well as other job opportunities available in entomology and other STEM fields. Then we passed around some really cool insects and other arthropods, asked and answered questions about their biology, and allowed students to touch and hold them. As you can see, it was quite a hit!
