The UC Riverside Entomology department provides outreach to educate members of our community about insects and the science of Entomology. Our outreach program consists of various extracurricular activities performed by current graduate and undergraduate students in the Department of Entomology at UC Riverside. Outreach ranges from speaking in K-12 classrooms, to participating in science fairs, to attending community gatherings. We bring both live and preserved insects and other arthropods for people to see and touch. We have presentations on a variety of topics including insect diversity, metamorphosis, and what entomologist do. We can also modify a presentation to suit your group's needs.
