Patel lab lets kids wrangle Parhyale and get close to exotic butterflies at the Lawrence Hall of Science


Erin helps kids catch some Parhyale and Heather explains how we make the Parhyale muscles fluoresce red.


Thumbs up for science! I brought a vial of fruit flies, and I’m glad I taped it securely, because one of the kids tried to open it.


Arnaud explains butterfly patterning to one of our adult science enthusiasts!


Heather is helping kids use a dissection microscope to view the fluorescently-labeled muscle of some Parhyale
