Do you need some closure?

Get sweet revenge with a bite this Valentine’s Day with Bugs for Breakups at the Connecticut Science Center! Sponsor a crunchy critter and name it after a love gone wrong to watch as our animal ambassadors munch it up with gusto.

Share in the delightfully wild closure as you tune in to our playful online showcase of a bug feast. Toast to moving on while contributing to a noble cause: your donations keep our STEM education and exhibits thriving to inspire families across Connecticut and beyond.

Laugh, love and lend a hand with this lighthearted celebration of critters, karma, and heart-hurt healing.
