The Great Bug Hunt 2020
...is now open for entries from home. This is a competition run by the Association for Science Education.
- The challenge is pretty simple – take your children into the garden or any outside space you own and see what bugs they can find!
- Simply point them at the nearest hedges, flower beds, trees, long grass, logs, stones, rocks (well, you get the picture)... let them explore and then report back what they have found.
- Make it into a project – if they find a spider or woodlouse, find out all about it. Draw it, examine it (carefully!), what does it eat, where does it live – maybe even write a story or poem about it, design a poster or shoot a video.
Please be sure, however, to follow government advice on social distancing and do not put yourself or others at risk.
- Entries need to be emailed over by the 12th June to firstname.lastname@example.org (use mailbigfile free to send large files).
- For some inspiration take a look at last year's winners
The closing date for entries is 12th June 2020.
