Do you want to help stop an invasive species before it takes over? The cool scientists at the NC Museum of Natural Science working on the School of Ants project have identified the Asian Needle Ant as a potential invasive species and are trying to find out how far it has spread.
Read this article to see how you can help, especially those in New York, Wisconsin and Washington, so please spread the word to your friends there.
Teachers and others from anywhere are encouraged to participate. Details can be found at http://www.schoolofants.org/participate
You can also find out about all the ants and other discoveries that have been collected so far on the same site.
This is a great project to do in the classroom as it takes less than an hour to collect data and the supplies are easy.
