Given the glut of news lately involving a bedbug infestation in New York City, maybe the timing isnt quite perfect for the Bug Invasion exhibition at the Discovery Science Center. But while bed bugs are tiny (and, um, real) the creatures at Bug Invasion are large-scale animatronic replicas. Theres also a collection of real insects, and plenty of educational material set up to learn more about these vexing creatures. Visitors can even play with remote-controlled robot bugs, which is kind of like taking melting ants under a magnifying glass to the next levelinstead of just ending life, you get to direct it (well, a close facsimile of it, at least). It all adds up to a skin-crawlingly good time.
