The Bugman

Event Type: 

Family Program

A Healthy BUG is a Happy, Alive BUG! Can insects be out of shape? Do they need to exercise? This fun, interactive program includes LIVE Bugs and Bugman’s original bug videos demonstrating exciting fitness topics. We’ll investigate breathing right, eating right, muscles, and resting among other interesting facts of staying in shape from the Bug’s perspective. We might even break out in a round of Insect-Aerobics or try some “fitness food” with Bugs!

“Tippy Towers”: When building a better structure, an engineer must keep in thought what materials to use and how strong the building should be so it does not come tumbling down. Participants will be challenged to learn about the engineering process, then practice the process by constructing a load-bearing tower. Which team’s tower can support the most weight?
