December 15, 2016 GMT

STAMFORD — The first-grade class at the city’s newest magnet school showcased their entomology skills this week during their “Creepy Crawly Convention.”

The young students presented their research on beetles, cicadas, praying mantises, walking sticks, fireflies, dragonflies, and other insects.

In a convention-like setting, students also showed their creative 3-D models and discussed the life cycle, survival skills, body structure and function of their chosen insect.

The event took place Monday afternoon at the Rogers International Baccalaureate School expansion at 200 Strawberry Hill Ave.
