Meet the Taxonomist Webinar Series

We’re hosting a webinar series designed for primary or high school classes, where we’ll hear from a different arthropod taxonomist every episode!

Our next webinar is on Tuesday 24 May at 11:30 ACST (12pm Eastern states, 10am WA). Any school is welcome to join us as we meet Dr Juanita Rodriguez from the Australian National Insect Collection!

Dr Rodriguez is a research scientist at the Australian National Insect Collection. Her research focuses on the evolution and diversity of spider wasps, although she also works on millipedes!

Juanita will share some of her research adventures, and then answer some questions from students. If you’re a school participating in Insect Investigators in 2022, you can send your questions in, in advance: just email them to Erinn or your state contact! If we have time on the day we’ll take questions from any students or classes watching live on the day.
