The Wild World of Bugs
(Grades 4-6, rising)
Butterflies, bees, dung beetles, and more—come explore the wild world of bugs! Did you know that insects play a crucial and often overlooked role in the environment? Join us as we trap, identify, and explore the wide array of insects and other invertebrates in different habitats in Knoxville. You’ll learn all about the secret world of insects, from their morphology to the role they play in ecosystems. By the end of this camp, you’ll be able to tell your friends what the creepy crawly in their yard is, and you’ll have a greater appreciation for the amazing creatures you share the world with. Note: On Thursday, we’ll meet at an offsite location. Instructor: Hope Ferguson

Molecules & Biomolecules in 3D
(Grades 4-6, rising)
Did you know that molecules take up space in three dimensions and can be mirror images of one another (for example, your hands)? In this hands-on camp, we’ll investigate how these three-dimensional orientations impact chemical bonding and interactions using modeling kits, tinker toys, origami, and other fun tools. You’ll participate in several learning activities and take a tour of the UT chemistry building. Instructor: Constance Bailey
