Opportunity at a Glance: Join us for a special evening for educators with Dr. Jessica Ware, Associate Curator, Invertebrate Zoology, Odonata & non-Holometabolous Minor Orders.   
Dr. Ware uses morphology and genetics/genomics to unravel the evolutionary history of insects.

Dragonflies and damselflies are terrific organisms to incorporate into K-12 grade curricula. They are commonly seen and tend to elicit a positive visceral response from students.  In this session, Dr. Ware will discuss how the evolution of color, dispersal, flight, and predation, can be highlighted using these insects in the classroom.
