What you'll learn in this kids camp class:

Explore small creatures with a BIG environmental impact! As part of our EDMO PRO program in the park, campers will go on local field expeditions and search for bugs, collect specimens and post photographs to iNaturalist—a citizen science project and online social network for nature research. Working with scientists and students from around the world, campers will identify arthropod species and document habitat conditions that influence our planet’s health.

21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: 
  • Responsibility
  • Emotion Management
  • Empathy
  • Collaboration
Sample Projects:

Engineer an Arthropod
  • Campers will create a brand new bug! Campers will consider what the bug looks like and how it survives in the wild!
  • Campers will learn about different bug species and the essential characteristics that define what arthropods are. Campers will also learn how shared characteristics can help determine which bugs are related and which are not.
Become a Citizen Scientist
  • Campers will be actively contributing to scientific research about the area that they live in. Campers will be identifying arthropod species and identifying the health of the environments where they found those species.
  • Campers will learn how to identify arthropod species and how to use the iNaturalist app. Campers will also learn how arthropods affect the environments they are found in and how they contribute to the overall health of our world’s ecosystems.
Tools of the Trade
  • Campers will be collecting bug specimens from their environment using different tools that real scientists use for collection. Campers will be introduced to the different ways scientists collect specimens for analysis.
  • Campers will learn how to collect and analyze specimen’s they find in the field. They’ll learn the proper way to collect these bugs and take them from their habitats. They will also be taught how to use the collection tools in the proper way and how to document their collections.
