About The Event

The Chewonki Foundation's traveling classroom returns to 7 Lakes Alliance each week through Aug. 15. This week, Chewonki educators talk about whether a bug is an insect, or if a spider is a bug? Chewonki’s “Bugmobile” transports the world of arthropods — insects and their relatives — into the classroom. Using models, costumes, and live specimens, we explain the unique characteristics of four major groups of arthropods. Our live “bug” species will introduce you to some of the fascinating adaptations essential for survival, such as mimicry, camouflage, armor, and the use of venom.
