This weekend, many locations in Madison were transformed to host the amazing Wisconsin Science Festival. Insect Ambassadors was lucky enough to acquire invitations to present at two events, the Madison Children’s Museum Adult Swim on Friday, and the WID Science Saturday event here on campus. We always love these events, and hope to attend them again next year!
Insect Ambassadors had a great time at UW Day a the state fair! Many brave kids held our tarantula, aptly named “Ocho”. There was also a freshly emerged cicada at our table when we arrived. The red shirt did not dissapoint, so if you want to be a Badger then come along with me! By the bright shining light of the moon!
The kindergarten and first graders at John Muir elementary sure know their bugs! It was fun sharing and learning about insects together, and getting to meet new six-legged friends.

If you are looking for a fun, educational, and affordable activity for your summer program then look no further! Insect Ambassadors would love to visit!
We are starting to get a lot of presentation requests so be sure to get your request in before all the good days fill up! You can see what days we already have scheduled presentations on the sidebar calendar (right).
Any suggestions for Insect Ambassadors? We are always striving to improve our program!
Another successful Science Night at Crestwood Elementary! Local science nights are a great way to support the young budding scientists is your community. If you have interest in setting up a science night for your school district contact the Insect Ambassadors as a great information resource!
Insect ambassadors had two presentations this past Saturday! Randall Elementary’s Super Science Saturday hosted us for 3, 30 minute workshops and Madison’s Hawthorne Branch Library invited us for a 45 minute community talk.
Both groups saw more parents than our usual presentations. It was awesome to see the proud look parents faces as their children answered questions and fearlessly battled hissing cockroaches. I think the parents most likely learned more than their kids!
