X-STEM Video Library 

Today's  X-STEM DC 2019 video features "From the Schoolyard to Singapore: Eating Insects Here, There, and Everywhere" with Zack Lemann
One of the nation’s most knowledgeable entomologists (experts in the branch of zoology dealing with insects), Zack Lemann has shared his passion for insects with the public since 1992 at the Audubon Zoo. Over the years as an entomologist, he has come to learn the nutritional value of insects – ranging from crickets and dragonflies to honey pot ants, beetles and waxworms. The Audubon Insectarium where he works has even opened a café called “Bug Appétit” which cooks and serves such favorite dishes as Chocolate Chirp Cookies and Cricket King Cake for visitors.
This school year, keep kids engaged with our FREE X-STEM video library! Our X-STEM videos are a terrific educational resource for teachers and parents. Students can search our STEM topics and hear from a variety of visionaries exploring conservation, medical research, space travel, math, weather patterns, and much more!
