From the Insect Expo website:
The ICE 2016 Insect Expo Committee is soliciting ideas for activities, presentations, and stations for an Insect Expo for youth during the 2016 International Congress of Entomology in Orlando. The Expo will be held on Wednesday, Sept 28th from 10:00am – 2:00pm in the Orange County Convention Center.
If you have a fun idea that teaches an important entomological concept, please send a description and a supply list of your activity to Andrine Shufran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
