$10 for a kid's Saturday Science Class (a $25 value)
$49 for a one-hour classroom presentation within a 10-mile radius of Sedgwick County (up to a $100 value)
$99 for a two-hour birthday party at The Bug Lady's Science Academy (a $250 value), which includes the following:
- A 45-minute animal and insect presentation
- Hands-on activities
- Tableware, cupcakes, and drinks for up to 25 people
During the Saturday Science Class, kids 4 and older soak up a weekly changing curriculum, which can cover scientific subjects such as animals, insects, weather, and the human body. The classroom presentation beckons The Bug Lady to travel to schools and daycares to educate up to 80 students and ready them for summer internships on ant farms. Animals such as lizards and tarantulas tag along, lending their many hands to feeding demonstrations, and pupils can participate in activities such as painting with cockroaches. Birthday parties treat guests to a similar lineup of events with a 45-minute presentation. Inside the science academy's 2,400-square-foot facility, guests devour cupcakes and sip drinks between hands-on activities that fuse entertainment and education better than the MIT faculty's weekly game of flashlight tag.
The Bug Lady's Science Academy
Carrie Tiemeyer proudly assumes the identity of The Bug Lady as she educates kids with the aid of more than 75 insects and animals. A teacher, Carrie began incorporating live-insect demos and activities into her lesson plans, which caused a former student to christen her with the arthropod-centric nickname. Noninsect cast members also enhance the demos, allowing science students to cozy up to hedgehogs, ferrets, reptiles, and birds. Committed to educating as many people as possible, The Bug Lady can show off her living coursework at the science academy, or escort teams of millipedes to a chariot and travel into the community for mobile demonstrations.
