Welcome to Purdue Entomology

Our outreach programs promote science education using insects and other arthropods. Department faculty, staff, and students provide engaging programs that highlight the biology, ecology, and diversity of insects.

On-Campus we have a small Bug Zoo, and welcome visitors. Off-Campus we offer a variety of program types; when possible we try to make our material compatible with Indiana State Science Standards.

Meet live insects and their relatives up close and personal! We offer a live petting zoo experience you’ll be sure to enjoy and talk about for a long time.
