For The Love of Bugs

by The Bug Chicks

A big part of our work as The Bug Chicks is bringing the world of insects and the science of entomology to students all over the country. Recently, we were featured on EarthFix news, an environmental news collaboration between several PBS stations in the Pacific Northwest. The video and article that came from the EarthFix team really showed what our work is about and we are so proud to share it!

We had the incredible opportunity to teach at Tucker Maxon Oral School. Most students wear cochlear implants and hearing aids. At the end of the workshop, one boy told us, "This is the best day of my life!"

And hearing that made it one of the best days of our lives.

Check out what we do and why we do it here:
