COVID-19 social distancing and hygiene measures: 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have revised the practices in our workshops to ensure that a.) social distancing is being maintained, b.) safe hygiene and sanitation practices are followed and c.) the health and safety of our presenters, your staff and the children/participants is given top priority.

For this reason we are now offering our workshops as a “contact-free” experience. This means that resources we usually pass around from student to student would be held solely by our presenters and simply shown to students without the opportunity to touch it. This includes our resin block collection, compound-eye glasses and magnified viewing containers as well as all live insects. Please let us know if you would like to proceed with this option.

With all of our workshops (whether you opt for contact-free sessions or not) we are undertaking extra precautions with regards to hand washing, sanitising and cleaning of shared equipment. Our presenters use hand sanitiser before passing live insects around and then re-sanitise directly afterwards. After each session, all resin blocks, eye glasses & specimen containers are also wiped down with disinfectant.

Our presenters wash their hands frequently throughout the day and will not attend your school or centre if they are showing any signs of illness.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please email Michelle Gleeson at michelle@bugsed.com.
