Public Outreach
Planetary Biodiversity Inventory: Plant Bugs

In 2005 we collaborated with the National Center for Science Literacy, Education and Technology at the American Museum of Natural History and Scholastic to develop an online web resource about True Bugs and a magazine article for students in grades 6-10. This resource is also a great reference for anyone wanting to understand the basics about bugs. This piece is part of SCIENCE EXPLORATIONS, an ongoing partnership between the Museum and Scholastic to develop exclusive age-appropriate content that helps students connect with today's world class scientists.
