Kids and insect scientists to meet in San Antonio
Date:2/18/2014

1,000 elementary school students are expected to attend an INSECT EXPO at the San Antonio El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM on Monday, February 24.

The Insect Expo will kick off the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Southwestern Branch of the Entomological Society of America (ESA), which will be held February 24-27.

This free educational event will reinforce students' science skills with hands-on activities and a live insect zoo, and it will allow students to enjoy opportunities to interact with professional insect scientists as they participate in a wide variety of presentations and activities designed to educate people about the most numerous, widespread, and diverse group of organisms on earth -- Insects!

The ESA Southwestern Branch meeting will be attended by hundreds of entomologists, who will present their research on mosquitoes, West Nile virus, ticks, bed bugs, agricultural insect pests, pollinators, and much more. In addition, students from southwestern universities will face off during the Linnaean Games, a lively question-and-answer, college bowl-style competition on entomological facts.

Journalists who would like to attend the meeting and/or the INSECT EXPO should contact Paul Schattenberg with Texas AgriLife Extension in Bexar County at 210-859-5752 or at paschattenberg@ag.tamu.edu.
