Elementary and middle school students can spend a week studying insects through the University of Georgia Bug Camp.
Set for July 19 through 23 on the Athens, Ga., campus, the camp curriculum will cover insect collecting, insect identification, research laboratory tours and hands-on learning with UGA entomology faculty and graduate students.
The cost of the camp is $150. For more information, see the website www.ent.uga.edu/BugCamp/index.htm or contact Marianne Robinette at email@example.com or (706) 542-1238.
