- $9 for a kids’ science class on a Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ($15 value)
During science classes, kids 5 or older soak up a curriculum that changes weekly inside the science academy’s 2,500-square-foot facility, with classes covering subjects such as animals, insects and chemistry experiments. Pupils can participate in activities such as feeding demonstrations with tarantulas and lizards or painting with cockroaches.
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 150 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.
