What is the difference between an earthworm and a mealworm?

We’ll have all hands-on activities to learn about the behavior of these and other critters.
THE AMAZING WORLD OF WATER-Mar. 2022
Water is one of the most abundant resources on earth. What is it made of and how does it function? You’ll be amazed at how much you do not know about this substance that constantly surrounds us. We’ll learn about why it is important to protect the water on our planet and we’ll even perform some water tests by designing and using our own water filters. Come join the fun!
THE BIG WORLD OF LITTLE INSECTS-Apr. 2022
This is the best time of the year to learn about these little six-legged wonders. We’ll learn about the life-cycle of bees, ants, lady bugs and crickets.
