Arthropods make up approximately 75% of all known species. Even though the majority of Earth’s species are arthropods very little research has been conducted to assess the use of arthropods in educational settings until recently. Research in arthropod education addresses the use of arthropods or information about arthropods in any formal or informal educational setting. The field of arthropod education research is a new area of study where meaningful and relevant scholarship is being conducted. This special issue will focus on research that addresses any aspect of arthropod education and will bring together the top experts in the field.
