I now offer virtual presentations! We have experimented with this and it works well and offer some things not seen with an in-person visit. The biggest advantage is that the camera can get much closer to the animals not normally available in the classroom. The students will now get to see details not previously available. Timing wise we also found that more live animals can be shown in the same frame of time! A Q&A segment also fits very nicely at the end. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to book!
My name is David Albaugh and they call me the Bug Guy. For more than 20 years I have been visiting schools and libraries throughout Rhode Island educating on insects and arachnids. Unfortunately though, due to my current work schedule at my fulltime job, 2017 will be the last year I will be doing presentations at schools. When I worked a Sunday through Thursday shift I could dedicate Fridays to come visit all of the great schools that I have visited for all of these years. This is no longer the case.
Because of this I am forced to change my focus from school presentations to those at libraries, birthday parties and similar outings. I am truly going to miss visiting all of the amazing schools in Rhode Island and meeting so many bright and wonderful students. This may actually be a step in the right direction though as I am hearing more and more that schools are no longer doing their insect units and as such, will probably not need me to visit.
Booking these presentations is easy and will be priced based on location and number of expected audience or party goers. They usually average about $50 for an hour though this may change depending on how far I have to travel and if the group is oversized.
