Title: Youth and Entomology
Url: https://extension.entm.purdue.edu/4hyouth/
Publisher: Purdue University
Description: From Purdue University comes Youth and Entomology, an online resource "dedicated to assisting youth and others interested in discovering insects by providing the resources needed to get started and to achieve success." While this resource was created primarily with 4-H participants in mind, anyone interested in learning how to collect insect specimens can benefit from it. The main attractions of Youth and Entomology for budding entomologists are its two resource books: How to Make an Awesome Insect Collection and Who Let the Bugs Out?, both of which can be read for free online and are available to purchase in print. The first book "teaches all that a beginning student needs to know about how to find, collect, identify, preserve and display insects," while the second title (intended to be a companion to the first book) focuses on Integrated Pest Management and the importance of insects in general. Other parts of Youth and Entomology include guidance for those pursuing entomology as a 4-H project and a collection of helpful how-to videos covering various aspects of insect collection.
