Edgecomb, Diane Insect Comedy Nature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!" Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA

Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Butterfly Release Nature- Animals,
Nature- Gardening,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Everyone loves butterflies, especially up close and personal. They are a medium that unlocks the heart of angry teenagers, and are able to coax the shyest of children out of their shells. When there is a butterfly release in town, people literally drop everything to attend. The day of the event students learn how to identify host and nectar plants, what Monarch eggs, larvae, and pupal forms look like; how to tell a male from female and why the males have pheromone pouches on their wings. There is much discussion on native butterflies in NY and identifying specimens patrons have observed. Releases attract the attention of the local media, and are great publicity. I have Monarch, Painted Lady, Mourning Cloak, Eastern Black Swallowtail, and Red Admiral Butterflies this season. Wild-caught displays (not always available) might include Eastern Tailed Blue, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Clouded Sulphur, Cabbage White, White Admiral, and Baltimore Checkerspot. At the end of the program the butterflies are released either individually or as a group. This program is suitable for the 2017 Summer Reading Program.

This course is taught with a lecture and lab component. During lecture, students learn about the organization of the nervous system, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, and ionic basis for action potentials.

The lab component involves recording action potentials in real time from an insect, and analysis of the recording to interpret results. Robotic control of an insect using neural circuits and a cell phone usually interest the most hard core bored students!
