Some of the smallest creatures on our planet have complex armor–or exoskeletons–that protect them from the “giants” in their environment. Our next Little Explorers Club will help your little one understand how little bugs are kept safe through their unique and fascinating defenses. Together, we’ll learn how these incredible creatures can scurry about despite wearing suits of armor!

These 45-minute sessions guide children through a science topic with Museum scientists. Each exploratory session includes story time, an activity or experiment, artifact or animal encounters, and a craft.
