Experience science hands-on through the lens of the two most diverse animal groups - gastropods (snails and slugs) and arthropods (insects, arachnids and relatives). Learn about the range of diversity and variation in these groups, while learning about how these amazing animals go about their daily lives. We will dissect a snail to take a closer look at its teeth, learn how to pin a preserved insect, and get up close and personal with shells, mucus, exoskeletons, webs, and wings! Taught by biology graduate student Vanessa Knutson.
