It might be creepy, but entomology is one cool branch of science for kids! Bug Science is a funny, educational book filled with cool workshops that are ideal for science fairs. Sometimes it’s all about the bugs, like an experiment to reroute ants. Sometimes it’s about how we interact with bugs, like the workshop on spider phobias. You can even turn your friends into bug bait to see who has the sweetest skin.
Bug Science is peppered with sidebars from entomologists and is sure to inspire a new appreciation for the buggy world we live in.
