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.
As entomology students learn their science, they also must learn to navigate their profession. Opportunities abound for volunteering, engagement, and networking through the Entomological Society of America.
Undergraduate and graduate students in entomology and related fields are a vital subset of ESA members, and much of what ESA offers students is developed and designed by student volunteers. Learn more about ESA's Student Affairs Committee, various student activities, and how you can get involved.
Advances in technology have made analyzing large data sets ever more accessible—but there's still a steep learning curve. A graduate student in entomology shares her lessons learned for students getting started in data science.
