About Us


Our mandate is to provide the public and science community with internet access to high definition interactive 3D scans of entomological specimens from BC and around the world. Each item in our collection can be rotated up/down/left/right, zoomed-in on, and measured. It's like have access to a lab microscope in your livingroom... but better!

Our focus is to make interactive imagery so engaging that general public understands and then cares about nature and its hidden treasures. It gets kids excitted and engage so they go outside. We accomplish our goals by bridging the knowledge gap that keeps the public from reading scientific papers and research. We make it fun to learn in three important ways:

  Peak interest so the learning process can begin
  Simplify terms so the learning process continues
  Self directed and engaging so learning is fixed

Kids and the public have the ability to understand the concepts of how and why, with difficult terminology simply defined. So we reduce the challenge that keeps most people from even beginning the learning process.
