WELCOME TO BUSY BEETLE SCIENCE!
Since 2020, Busy Beetle Science has been helping students get excited about science. My lessons focus on relevant topics for kid's every day lives. Students learn while having a good time!
Dr. Williams founded Busy Beetle Science as a response to the changes in the world of education. It had become evident to her that the shift to virtual lectures were not adequate for many, if not most, of her students at the University of Central Oklahoma. The STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) fields have a vital hands-on component. Biology is difficult enough to teach without the ability to provide supplemental in person demonstrations. Physics and chemistry would be found even more lacking without them. Therefore, she created Busy Beetle science to ensure that students who desired hands-on education in these fields would have an opportunity to receive it. Busy Beetle science focuses on students ages 4 – 18. These ages suffer even more than college students without labs, demonstrations, participation and experimentation. Dr. Williams strives to provide in-person education that is engaging and appropriate for these age groups.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Who is Rebecca Williams?
Hey all you parents of budding learners out there! I am really excited to meet your super scientists. I have been teaching children in non-formal education settings for 12 years. My first experience teaching children was about 12 years ago when I worked for my university's bug zoo. It was so much fun! I loved it and continued to work for the bug zoo as I pursued my B.S. in Entomology. When I began my M.S. I continued to work with children by entertaining at birthday parties with my insect collection and live insects. Then as a PhD. student I continued entertaining and started working at the bug zoo again. When I completed my PhD in entomology I went to work for a field laboratory. This laboratory hosted lots of children's events. So I designed many nature based explorations for various age groups over the five years I spent as the Manager of the field laboratory. When I had my first baby I started working as an adjunct at the local university and started teaching more formal biology classes out of my home. My business has expanded and I teach regularly during the day and afterschool in many capacities. I am excited to teach all ages though most of my experience is with kids from PreK - high school. Send me your super scientists and we will have fun!
