Science Expo and Preschool visits

Posted on Apr 27, 2015

Heidi MacLean, PhD and graduate students Kate Augustine and Laura Sligar brought the Caterpillar Experiment to the 2015 UNC Science Expo on April 11th where they invited citizen scientists to collect data on the effects of hot and cold temperatures on caterpillar biting rate. Heidi also has been busy this month teaching 6 classes of 2-5 year olds at Epworth Preschool about the Tobacco Hornworm life cycle. Heidi and the kids also made caterpillar art by dipping the wandering caterpillars in non-toxic paint and letting them crawl across paper leaving colorful caterpillar proleg prints wherever they went!
