SCI 61: Bugs & Botany


Course Description

In this course, students will learn how to identify insect and plant species common to this part of Illinois. They will also become familiar with major orders of insects and families of plants, enabling them to give an organism a name no matter where they are in the world. This will occur through hands-on learning, outdoor expeditions, dissecting microscopes, and field guides. Students will also have the chance to experience and care for insects and plants in the classroom. Ultimately, students will help build a physical record, in the form of plant and insect specimens, that documents Northridge’s world of life.
