Science Guide: Thirty-two thousand known species of spiders in the world. There are in the order Araneae.

Peter Parker: Wow! That’s amazing. This is the most advanced electron microscope in the Eastern Seaboard.

It’s unreal.

Arachnids from all three groups possess varying strengths which help them in their constant struggle in search for food.

Scientific Guide: For example, the delana spider, family sparacidae has the ability to jump to catch its pray.

Peter Parker: School paper?

Scientific Guide: Um hm (yes).

Next we have the net web spider, family philistadidae, genus cucucanea. It spins an intricate funnel-shaped web whose strands have a tensile strength proportionately equal to a type of high tension wire in bridge building.

Friend of Peter Parker: Leave him alone.

Bully One: Or what?
Bully Two: Or his father will fire your father.
Bully One: What’s your daddy gonna do, sue me?

Teacher: What is going on? The next person who talks will fail this course. I kid you not.

Scientific Guide: This grass spider hunts using a set of reflexes with nerve conduction velocity so fast, that some researchers believe that it almost borders on precognition: an early awareness of danger.

A spider sense.

Friend: Look at that spider.
Peter Parker: Some spiders change colors according to their environment; it’s a defense mechanism.
Friend: Peter, what makes you think I’d want to know that.
Peter Parker: Who wouldn’t?

Scientific Guide: Over five painstaking years, Columbia’s genetic facilities believes that the genetic code . . .
Friend: Can you talk to her now?
Peter Parker: Oh, come on. You talk to her.
Friend: Okay.

Many Jane: Disgusting.
Friend: Yeah, I hate those things.
Mary Jane: I love em!
Friend: Yeah, me too! You know, spiders can change their color to blend into their environment.
Mary Jane: Really?
Friend: Yeah, I’d say it’s a defense mechanism.
Many Jane: Cool.
Friend: Yeah.

Scientific Guide: transfer RNA to encode an entirely new genome, combining the genetic information from all three spiders into these fifteen genetically designed super spiders.

Mary Jane: There’s fourteen.

Scientific Guide: I beg your pardon?

Mary Jane: One’s missing.
Friend: Yeah.
Scientific Guide: Huh. I guess the researches are working on that one.

Friend: Do you know that this is the largest electron microscope on the Eastern Seaboard?

Teacher: You were talking throughout the entire presentation. Let’s go talk about how we listen.

Peter Parker: Hey . . . uh . . . can I take your picture? I need one with a student in it.
Mary Jane: Sure. Where do you want me? Over here?
Peter Parker: Yeah. Yeah, that’s great.
Mary Jane: Don’t make me look ugly.
Peter Parker: That’s impossible . . . Perfect.
Mary Jane: That good?
Peter Parker: Great. That’s great!

MJ’s Friend: MJ, Let’s go!
Peter Parker: Wait! Thanks! . . . Ouch!

Teacher: Parker? Let’s do it.

Spider. Are spiders all the same, or do spiders come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and abilities?

Tarantula. Were the students in class, or were they on an excursion or field trip? Where were they on that day?

Ant, Termite. The class was just looking at the displays and reading the descriptions. Is this right or wrong?

Bee, Wasp. Is Peter Parker a very popular student? Do (all of) his classmates like, admire and respect him?

Grasshopper, Locust. Was their teacher very pleased with the students’ conduct and behavior?

Butterfly, Moth. Both Peter Parker and his friend were very knowledgeable and interested in spiders and science. Is this correct or incorrect?

Caterpillar. What happened in the end?


Fly, Mosquito. My school has gone on excursions and field trips to nature, museums, palaces and companies. Yes or no?

Bugs, Insects.
We have studied science in school (for students). We studied science in school (for other people).

Fleas, Ticks, Mites.
Are there bullies in your school? Were there bullies in your school?

Ladybug. Should science do genetic research and conduct genetic engineering?

What might happen in the future?
