Buzz, whir, click, chirp! It’s summer, and the trees, fields, and warm nights are full of sounds! They sound like machinery, but they’re actually insects! Learn how insects make sounds, then make your own instruments with your family using our kit. Watch the Insect Orchestra here or see it on tour at the Rhode Island Museum of Art and Science in August and the RI Natural History Survey in September.
At Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive, Providence, RI 02906). Check the 15 Minute Field Trips Facebook page for weather updates.
Masks and registration required.
“Join the insect orchestra” is part of the “Art and Science at the Park” series with 15 Minute Field Trips. “Art & Science at the Park” is a continuation of the “Art in the Park” series, with more focus on community action to protect wildlife and biodiversity and combat climate change. Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities. Great for families or to use in the classroom. Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.
