New Entomology Outreach Website

Class Insecta is a free website, designed and maintained by me, that lets young scientists upload photos of insects to a digital collection, where the insects are identified by current and former members of Cornell University's undergraduate entomology club, Snodgrass and Wigglesworth. Our identifiers do their best to provide an ID and either a short life history or an interesting fact about the insect. Our aim is to provide the taxonomic information, while keeping kids interested and informed about their local insect fauna.

I'm currently seeking funding, mainly through a Kickstarter page (, to expand I'd like to improve the website, as well as recruit more identifiers and find more kids interested in using Class Insecta. 

If anyone is interested in helping with the occasional identification, or has any comments or questions, I could definitely use the feedback.
