Backyard Bugs - Discovery-based Science Explorations

Take me to the TotallyBuggin! store

With this software, students in grades K-5 will learn about life science topics through exploration and discovery of the insect world. The goal is to develop software modules that delve into the characteristics of virtual "live" insects, their life cycles and their environments. The software will be structured in such a way that interaction with it reflects how science is done, emphasizing inquiry and discovery as a way of achieving knowledge and understanding.
