North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Bugfest: Learn More About Insects (and Even Eat Some)
September 16, 2016 | grubb
In a single day, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences attracts more than 35,000 guests thanks to the interactive fun promised at each year's Bugfest. From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 17th, the museum transforms into an insect-lover's haven, stocked with more than 100 different exhibits focused on various bugs.
Join the crowd and you'll have the chance to talk to entomologists (AKA bug scientists) and even eat insect-infused foods prepared by seasoned local chefs. At the various exhibits, you'll get a deeper look at the world of arthropods (which make up the majority of the animals on the planet) and get to do some hands-on activities. Head to the beekeeping workshop to get some firsthand experience in maintaining a beehive.
