New Six Legged Science Exhibit at the Museum of the Earth Highlights Insect Diversity and Importance

In collaboration with the Cornell University Insect Collection, the Museum of the Earth opened a new exhibit on March 28 called “Six-Legged Science: Unlocking the Secrets of the Insect World”.

The exhibit was developed by Corrie Moreau, Jason Dombroskie, various CUIC students and researchers along with the help of a National Science Foundation grant.

“The reason we wanted to open this exhibit was to highlight the diversity and importance of insects in the environment,” Moreau, curator of the CUIC and professor of entomology, said. “We also wanted to share the active research happening in the Cornell University Insect Collection and how it functions as a local to global research resource.”
