Our graduate students educate and entertain local school groups with zany antics and entomological paraphernalia. If you would like to arrange a tour for your group, call our main office at (540) 231-6341 or send an email note.
Most outreach programs for school groups visiting our department take place in Room 220 Price Hall. If you are uncertain of the location for your tour, please come to the Department of Entomology main office in room 216 Price Hall. This program is 1 hour in length and consists of a presentation along with learning activities using live specimens. We ask that each group provide the appropriate amount of supervision and maintain control of the participants during the tour.
Please call (540) 231-6341 the morning of your scheduled tour to confirm your appointment. If you will be delayed, call to let us know. Since all of our presenters are student volunteers and due to course and room commitments, we may not be able to reschedule your tour for that day. Upon arriving to campus, you will need to pick up a parking pass at the Visitor Center located at 965 Price's Fork Road. Please allow at least 15 minutes to find a parking space after picking up the pass. If you have additional questions or concerns, please let us know.
