Virtual Outreach: How Students Bring an Insect Zoo to an Entire State

The Kansas State University Insect Zoo has long been an on-campus attraction, but a student entomology club's efforts to create virtual engagement opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic have built a new model for outreach that continues to spread the educational value of the Insect Zoo far and wide.

Why Entomology Students Should Get Active in Education and Outreach

Getting people excited about insect science and inspiring the next generation of entomologists are worthy goals on their own, but leading education and outreach programs can be a valuable professional experience for any entomology student, as well. One entomology master's student shares her experience and advice on getting involved in community education and outreach.

A detailed inforgraphic depicting the sterile insect technique, titled "Sterile insect technique: Control of primary screwworm." At far left is a picture of a fly next to a "radiation" icon. Next is a cycle diagram showing with text "primary screwworm lifecycle." Next is the same cycle diagram with a crossed circle over the section with a female fly laying eggs in a deer wound, with text "Sterile Insect Technique Reduces Female Oviposition." Then an equal sign leads to the final section with icon images of a deer and a cow, with text "Interruption of screwworm life cycle is successful protecting ungulates significantly."

Designing, Producing, and Communicating Effective Scientific Graphical Abstracts

Graphical abstracts are increasingly vital to research publishing, but many entomologists have not been trained in creating them. Learn the fundamentals of graphical abstracts and get some advice from experts in this recap of a workshop hosted by the ESA Student Affairs Committee at the 2022 Joint Annual Meeting of ESA, ESC, and ESBC.
