We all know that kids are curious. They pick up random things outside, and sometimes that includes bugs! Our guest today shares the same curiosity, so he decided to share his knowledge with the world and become the Bug Whisperer!

Antonio Gustin used to do traveling shows to schools and Discovery World, but due to the pandemic he has shifted his show online; and now Tony's Creepy Crawly Zoo is a weekly series on YouTube that you can watch at home (and from afar)!

He also created the The Gateway Science Project, a virtual reality experience that will allow kids to explore and hunt for bugs and reptiles while going through learning courses. We spoke to Tony about his interest in bugs, and about his nonprofit, and The Gateway Science Project that is helping kids with STEAM.

Watch Tony's Creepy Crawly Zoo on YouTube by searching for his channel iBugWhisperer to see amazing bugs and slugs each week!
