Don’t let their small stature fool you! These bugs are tiny, but mighty!

Learn how arthropods play a pivotal role in shaping a healthy environment. From pollinators, to pest control, to clean-up crews, and beyond, these little bugs have big jobs that they have to accomplish! The world would certainly look like a much different place without their help.

Bugs on Wheels: Little Bodies, Big Jobs! brings a selection of live arthropods from the Cockrell Butterfly Center to your classroom. Audiences of all ages will have a unique opportunity to meet some of the hardest workers in the invertebrate world up close and personal.
