The Bug Chicks, Project Noah to Present New Insect Show

The Bug Chicks, two ladies who hold master’s degrees in entomology from Texas A&M University and who produce educational videos about insects, are planning a new show which aims to inspire you to “get off the couch” and explore America’s backyard wilderness.

This coast-to-coast journey will take place with a vintage sofa that will be placed in different ecosystems across the country. At each stop they will explore America’s backyard wilderness and the most diverse animals on the planet. They will be partnering with Project Noah (supported by National Geographic), and they will be writing guest Features for the Entomology Today blog.

Here’s a promo video:

The show will air on YouTube in November, 2013. Each episode will be linked with new National Science Framework Standards that help teachers to promote critical thinking skills. DVDs of the series will be available through various outlets along with curricula. Each week they will highlight an episode on Project Noah’s Official Blog, and NPR’s Science Friday website, where they are featured guest bloggers.

  1. If your looking for a place to visit go to Yuma AZ and look up Stacey Bealmear. She works for Univ of AZ. in Yuma as an Extension Agent. She has a degree in entomology and can show you insects in the desert. She’s just as awesome as you girls are.
