Bug-watching on the Internet

Here are some Web sites just crawling with insect information:

www.insecta-inspecta.com/ - Art contests, illustrations, and information on insects. It was created by seventh graders at Thornton Junior High School Honors Academy in Fremont, Calif., under the review of the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

bugscope.beckman.uiuc.edu/ - Bugscope lets classrooms remotely control an environmental scanning electron microscope at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. You can observe an experiment in progress or propose your own.

www.naturalpartners.org/InsectZoo - Here you can tour the O. Orkin Insect Zoo at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. You can also rotate an illustration of a grasshopper, view an insect habitat, or explore many different facts about insects.
