Entomology Youth Programs

 Summer Entomology Camps!

Now accepting registrations!  We always fill up fast with a long waiting list, so be sure to get registered soon.

Campers get the change to learn all about entomology and become junior entomologists.  We will perform experiments and activities with insects, get to hold tarantulas, roaches, millipedes and more. Campers will also collect insects and put together an insect collection.  Campers will receive a student collection kit, complete with professional net, all the materials needed to collect and pin insects, a collection bag, and collection box.  For more information, contact Molly at mekeck@ag.tamu.edu or 210-631-0400.

School & Youth Group Presentations:

If you are an educator and would like someone to speak to your school about insects, please let us know.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has a group of wonderful volunteers who will come out to your location and give a 30-45 minute lesson on entomology, complete with live insects, props, and an insect collection.

  • AgriLife Extension can work with you to set up a presentation. We request that presentations do not start earlier than 9am, for grades 1st and up.  We prefer no more than 30 1st & 2nd graders and no more than 60 3rd -5th graders per session.
