Exhibition Description

Butterflies Up-Close invites you to experience the fascinating transformation of a butterfly from an egg to a beautiful winged adult. With only around 1 in 20 eggs making it to adulthood, the butterfly is met with numerous dangers and threats during each stage of its life cycle. You will get to gain a deeper insight into how the butterfly behaves, interacts with the surroundings, and survives each stage of its life cycle to reach adulthood.

Flying with Butterflies

Description:We have all learnt about how butterflies transition through the four different stages of their life cycle, but will all of them survive to adulthood? Marvel at the diversity of these seemingly simple looking creatures and follow them on their journey through life as they deal with all the challenges which Mother Nature has for them. Students may get a chance to have some first-hand experience with the butterflies, and will get to know some new fluttery friends by the end of this session. They will also get to view butterfly specimens under microscopes to learn more about special parts of the butterflies which help them to survive!
