K-12 Connections Event
Unhuggable Animals
Subject Area:
    Science

Students discuss some of their least favorite animals and why they don't like them. Get up close and personal with animals such as spiders, skunks, snakes, and bats and find out why these animals are often misunderstood. Students are presented with the facts that dispel the myths about these "unhuggable" animals. The program also allows time for student questions, so come prepared.

Following the ICN session, registrants receive the complimentary books, Camouflage and Fighters or alternate titles.
