We call the daVinci Pursuit a museum without walls – and now we want to bring the museum straight to your home. The daVinci Pursuit is excited announce a new series called #dVPchallenge. Over the coming weeks, we will introduce simple challenges – fun for any age – with guidance from local scientists and artists alike. This week we’re learning about macroinvertebrates! A macroinvertebrates is any animal lacking a backbone and large enough to see without the aid of a microscope (e.i. insect, spider, worm).
For this weeks activity all you have to do is:
Learn form historic entomologist Thomas Say, but watch Timepiece Theaters video: https://www.thedavincipursuit.com/thomas_say/
Create your own insect (or macroinvertebrate if you want to be more broad) with found materials.
Take a photo and post your results on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook
Tag @daVinciPursuit (and don’t forget to follow us!)
Include the hashtag #dVPchallenge
Posts will be featured on our website (https://www.thedavincipursuit.com/).
We hope you will join us to learn something, create something, and have fun in the process!
