See what the fans are saying about our hands-on entomology events!

"Kids and their caregivers were so enthusiastic about the Arthropod Petting Zoo here at the Bacon Free Library! Professor Bugman was a funny, engaging, and knowledgeable presenter. Participants were thrilled to get not only an up-close look at a variety of fascinating invertebrates, but also the chance to hold or pet many of the creatures. This event was perfect for school vacation week, when we wanted to mix up our usual program offerings. We look forward to bringing Professor Bugman back here again sometime!"

"We had Professor Bugman join us for a week, and he did a great job creating a schedule that varied activities throughout the day and allowed campers to discovery a lot of different things during their nature blocks. We also loved having the exotic insect zoo!"

"We love having Professor Bugman at the Athol Public Library! His teaching style is fun and down-to-earth and his passion for insects turns even the most skittish people into brave and curious bug catchers! His background as a child educator is apparent by how naturally he interacts with the kids. Our Insect Safari had a long waitlist, so this is a great choice if you're looking for a program to attract more patrons. We look forward to our next program with Professor Bugman!"

"We had Professor Bugman at Norfolk Public Library for an Insect Safari, hosted at Stony Brook, our local Mass Audubon location. Both the kids and their grown ups had a blast catching bugs to examine! Professor Bugman was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and really engaged the kids during our excursion. We’ll be really excited to have him back for other programs in the future!"

"The event was very engaging! What I loved most other than the hands-on experience was how you introduced each 'critter' using content/academic specific language followed by an explanation/example in kid-friendly language. You created an atmosphere of curiosity where students were able to ask questions and make connections to prior knowledge."
