The Grow a Bug Smartboard SimLab allows students to explore 20 different insects that are commonly found in canola crop fields. Many of these insects will also be familiar to students in their everyday environments.
The Grow a Bug Smartboard SimLab has three main functions:
- It allows students to select an insect, explore its anatomy, and “grow” it. The bugs that students grow are referred to as “SimBugs” in this resource.
- It allows students to replace the body parts of one insect with body parts of any of the other 20 insects to create a SimBug.
- It provides students with the opportunity to see the effects of their SimBug on a canola field.
The Simlab application requires the Adobe Air Plugin to be downloaded an Installed on the host system.Download
