The number 1 spider on this list totally accounts for my instinctual fear of outhouses!  Shiver...

This is the craziest caterpillar ever!  The Bug Girl calls it the Mad Hatterpillar, but its real name - the gum leaf skeletonizer moth - is equally awesome.  This caterpillar wears a stack of its shed head capsules kind of like a totem pole hat.  Why?  Read on and find out!

I've listed some of my favorite invertebrate websites at Brainy Girls. Do you have a favorite insect- or invertebrate-related website to add? Should your website be listed? Let me know! :D

This week is National Pollinator Week - hurray!!! Pollinators are incredibly important in our ecosystems, and without them, there would be BIG changes in our food supply. Right now, they need YOUR help to restore their habitat - how about planting some pollinator-friendly plants in your yard this week? Go to www.pollinator.org for more information!

What do you know about insect eyes? You'll learn a few things by checking out these AMAZING macro photos of insect heads! I find fluffy number 7 to be especially cute!

How cool is this?  Scientists have genetically engineered silk worms that spin silk which fluoresces under black light.  Just think of the possibilities!

Feel like a mid-afternoon dance party break? Get down with this funky peacock spider (the female at the end seems nonplussed - wouldn't you agree?)!

Haven't you always wondered what the heck daddy longlegs are?  Spiders, or not?  Deadly venom, or not?  I have the answers!

Do you think that girls are interested in attending STEM camps?  Heck yes!  Check out AND VOTE ON this proposal to support Girls Adventures in Math, Engineering, and Science camp. Please share, vote and leave comments to prove to the judges that there is a HIGH demand for girls' STEM camps!!

Story
Tagline
We are brainy girls! This includes anyone who has a brain, uses her brain, and wants to grow her brain. Check out our online magazine at www.brainygirls.org!
Introduction
The purpose of our online magazine and Google+ page (run by Marci) is to relay the message that it's ok - and even awesome - to use your noggin', show off your smarts, demonstrate the workings of that lump of gray matter between your ears. You don't have to choose between being a girly girl, or a geek, or an average Jane - you can be whoever you want to be (and any of those things are great, as long as they are you!). Just use your brain, and be proud of it! Use this page to connect with each other, share stuff you think others should know about, and maybe even grow your brain a little bit!

ALSO! If you are a woman who has advice for girls about how to use their brains, please follow our page as well! We want to connect girls with role models who want to nurture the curiosity and intellect that EVERY girl possesses.
