Simply identify a habitat, explore and discover the bugs that live there, photograph or draw them and record your findings – it’s that simple – plus, with the added benefits of fresh air, having fun and covering important parts of the science curricula in one fell swoop!
The winner will be the submission with the most diverse range of bugs and the most innovative and clearly presented findings – (e.g. map, drawn images of bugs, tips taken from website, follow-up findings), regardless of how big or small your facilities.
