Bug Invasion at The Cube {Giveaway!}

see more by

They’re coming to get you…at Discovery Science Center! No magnifying glass needed here; these bugs are larger than life! Transport yourself to a world where ants, praying mantises, and scorpions tower over you at 1,000 times their actual size in the new fall exhibit, Bug Invasion, now through October 31st at The Cube!

And I have a SUPER DUPER giveaway for one lucky winner who will receive 4 FREE tickets to Discovery Science Center & VIP wristbands to enjoy all the rides for free at the The Pumpkin Factory which is conveniently located across the street.  Read last paragraph on how to enter!

My daughter Emma and I  got to check out this creepy crawly exhibit where over two thousand square feet of exhibit space features giant bug animatronics, a world-class insect collection, and interactive educational stations including big robo-bugs and a 3-D maze (amongst lots of other things!)

Check the calendar for updates on special weekend events including Dr. Sue’s Traveling Insect & Arthropod Zoo, “It’s a Bug’s Life” story time, and bug demos from OC Vector Control and the So Cal Rat & Mouse Club of America.

Dr. Sue was there when we went and Emma and her friend loved the bugs! I was shocked at how fearless she was with petting the little critters!   Here the girls are inspecting Dr. Sue’s friends…

It is a great exhibit, fun and educational for all ages.  Here is a special Discovery Science Center coupon for you to use this month (through 10/31/10) to save $5 off Super tickets! Click HERE to download a bigger version.

    If I had to pick a favorite bug I guess it would be a beneficial one that\’s also pretty, a lady bug. But I\’m going to answer for my 5 yr old who\’s online name is Princess Entomologist. She would go for a Roley Polly or Centipede.
