Zoom into Scary Science: Creepy Creatures

Creepy, crawly, slimy, hairy!

During this family-friendly Zoom, you'll learn more about the invasion of the (icky!) spotted lanternfly and its impact on farming in Pennsylvania from Assistant Professor of Biology Matthew Helmus, who was featured in the New York Times for his lanternfly research.

Then it’s on to (scary!) bats—linked with vampires for hundreds of years and a potent symbol for what can go bump in the night—with Brent Sewall, Assistant Professor of Biology, who studies emerging infectious diseases in wildlife, particularly white-nose syndrome in bat populations.
