Science of…Insect Antennae
November 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Long, short, fuzzy, or lobed insect antennae could possibly be just as diverse as the amount of insects out there. Antennae are sensory organs that help the insect feel and smell their environment, often being called “feelers”. Many insects have great eyesight, but they don’t have a nose to smell, so instead they could use their antennae to smell chemicals in the air. But, it is not only smelling, insects use their antenna for other things as well, like feeling the surface of an object, sensing hot and cold, listening to sounds and detecting the movement of air or wind. In this Science Of episode we will be breaking down insects by antennae shape and giving you a better understanding of why certain insects have certain antennae shapes! Join us and find out more!
