The Society’s Outreach programs will be aimed towards promoting the field of dipterology broadly to the general public including younger students, and to share and teach about flies to communities that would otherwise not receive such exposure to science, entomology and dipterology. If you have ideas for outreach projects, please contact us to discuss!
Outreach activities for local communities are intended to promote the appreciation and understanding of flies to students and the general public, and may be independent events, invited or volunteered exhibits at larger events, hosted seminars, displays or activities at natural history museums, science centers, schools or universities, and development of teaching aids and training modules for K–12 educators on Diptera diversity, ecology and natural history.
Among possible field-based activities are fly days, biodiversity events, bioblitz’s, and participation in training courses, all with the goal to engage the general public, citizen scientists, avocational and vocational dipterists and other entomologists, and students at all levels.
Teaching aids and training modules will be made available here as they are developed.
