Tony's Creepy Crawly Zoois creating Kids Insect/Reptile Science series
Q: What is the Creepy Crawly Zoo and what does it do exactly?Tony’s Creepy Crawly Zoo is an exciting, dynamic, and theatrical hands-on live insect show that inspires a lifelong love of science and STEAM education in our community’s youth. It empowers students with critical thinking skills and introduces them to an enthralling gateway science that is as accessible as their own backyards.
“The cure for boredom is curiosity, there is no cure for curiosity” – Dorthy Parker.
“All children are natural scientists. They are naturally insanely curious about their world. Over the last 25 years, I’ve learned how perfect insects are to reach them and spark that curiosity to foster a lifelong fascination with learning. Insects are everywhere and affect everything. They are the most dominant life form on the planet. They are exciting, mysterious, alien, and abundantly available to kids. Insects are almost every child’s first fascination with the natural world. No child has to do anything more than step outside to find them. Once they are introduced to them, curiosity and questions follow effortlessly. That is the very foundation of what science is – curiosity. Insects are so diverse in their form and functions that the questions kids ask about insects can lead to every scientific discipline known.” – Antonio Gustin
To reinforce this experience, we have designed an activity book My Science Diary for students. The book is available on AMAZON. The Science Diary introduces students to the tenets of science and provides pages for students to record observations like real scientists. The tenets of science are very simple yet crucial to developing critical thinking skills that any student can master at any age.
