One of the rites of spring here at Purdue University is an event appropriately called Spring Fest. This family-friendly event draws thousands of people to the campus over a single weekend. It is a fun-filled way to provide a glimpse of what is going on within the hallowed halls of "Good Ol' Purdue."
The Department of Entomology contributes to Spring Fest with Bug Bowl. This will be the 24th edition of this "all things insect" celebration. Bug Bowl participants have the opportunity to mimic the behavior of our long-lost ancestors and turn insects into human food. Paleo diet, anyone? If eating insects isn't your thing, you can cheer on racing cockroaches, peer through a microscope at small insects or actually touch an insect or arachnid at the petting zoo.
