September 19th, 2014

All monthly meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in insects, please join us!
Members may bring exhibits for show-and-tell. If you have photos, video, or other media to share, please email the society.

Welcome back! The academic year is underway, and we have a great set of talks lined up for the society. In addition to this month’s speaker we will be discussing the calendar photo contest (get those last macro shots of the year in before the weather turns!), advertising the society at other universities, potential outreach events, and other trips we can take as a society.

SPEAKER: Sam Jaffe

TITLE: The Caterpillar Lab – experiments in natural history education

Sam is going to tell us about The Caterpillar Lab’s success in bringing insects to the public in New England through various shows, outreach programs, museums, and open hours in the lab. He would especially like to start a discussion about how to help teachers bring insects into the classroom, and how others in the society can get involved in entomological outreach. His talk will feature lots of great photos and videos!
