Have you seen a cicada this year? Do you think it was a periodical cicada? Do you know what a brood is? Check out our blog post and video about these fascinating bugs and their amazing life cycle. They should be emerging out of the ground already in some parts of the country. From this map you can see if they will be visiting your area!


Also be sure to check out the Science NetLinks collection on periodical cicadas; we have original STEM resources for K-12 that you can use with students of all ages. We also have links to some of the best information we've found on the web.


Please post your thoughts and questions here, and also links to any interesting stories you find. If you or your students have pictures or videos, feel free to share them too.
