A Celebration for Arthropods
BugFest is a wonderful day hosted by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in September each year. This event draws about 35,000 visitors each year in celebration of all arthropods. BugFest introduces the public to arthropod art, exotic and delicious insect dishes, fun facts, insect collections, and so much more.
So what do we do?
NC State's own entomology department and EGSA run boothes allowing kids to get up close and personal with our insects and research. It is an enjoyable experience for children and graduate students alike! For more info visit http://www.bugfest.org/
