The Strange and Marvelous World of Biology

Presented by: Kami Huntzinger

The world of biology is full of fascinating plants, unforgettable microorganisms, and unbelievably absurd creatures. Parasitic worms that cause grasshoppers to go insane. Zombie ants… and other insects who mimic them. Tongue-eating isopods. Snot as a defense mechanism?
We’ll talk about different kinds of biological partnerships, some helpful and some that are so dastardly cruel that you won’t believe that they exist. We’ll discuss the research that modern biologists are doing around the world. This is a fun class focusing in on the incredible richness and diversity of the world around us.


Kami Huntzinger lives in North Logan, Utah, with her husband and five children. She has been homeschooling for over twenty years. Each child has been a different and unique adventure, and that has been one of her favorite things about homeschooling. She and her family love to travel all over the world. They run Bees Brothers, a crazy science experiment that turned into a small honey business, in order to finance their hobbies. Kami has a degree in biology and chemistry and worked in science research before starting her family. She is serving as the LDSHE Youth Conference Director this year.
