Thanks to all for your wonderful work. We will offer more review of this event later, including photos and videos. In the meantime, here is a sampling of photos of the event.

“This Halloween learn about what makes a bad bug BAD. Learn about the deadliest insect and learn something new about those insects and arachnids we often fear from the big to the small. Learn about monster bugs in ancient times, meet some live critters, go on a bug hunt, or go “beyond a bug in a box” as we take a closer look at some collection specimens using augmented reality technology. To experience our augmented reality insects with your own mobile device download the Junaio app here. Further instructions will be provided at the event!”
