The program welcomes guests of all ages to interact with the scientists, who are happy to converse with you about their current research. Come back for new guests each month. Free with general admission. No registration required.

This month, meet biology graduate student Katie Fiocca, who studies social insects from the cloud forest in Costa Rica. Fiocca has traveled to Central America to study the nutrition and communication of social insects and has worked with ants, wasps and even birds who make their home in the tropics. See photos of Costa Rican flora and fauna, and learn what it is like to work in the field. Bonus: Take home a coloring page of your new favorite animal!
