Saturday Family Science June 27 Metamorphosis

Saturday, June 6, 10am
with Aemelia Thompson

We all go through changes in our life, but metamorphosis tops any changes humans can do. Butterflies, frogs, millipedes, all of them experience this incredible process. Learn about the life cycles of our metamorphosing friends at this Saturday Family Science.

Join Aemelia Thompson at 10am on Saturday, June 6th at 10am for the live stream portion of Virtual Saturday Science.
