Insect Pinning & Mounting
Traditionally reserved for high school students, an increasing number of younger students have taken up the challenge of learning how to start an insect collection. This workshop is suitable for students aged 8 and up. They will learn everything they need to know including how to catch, kill, mount, label, preserve and present an insect collection.
As part of this workshop, students will be provided with a setting board, pins, mounting needles, labeling card, instruction booklet and an Australian butterfly and beetle to mount.
