With the help of slides, preserved specimens (including brown recluse and black widow), and visits with our live tarantula ambassadors we'll unlock the mysteries of these elusive animals.

These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
