What would you do if you came face to face with a giant grasshopper? Or a caterpillar?

A new exhibit at the Arizona Science Center is taking you down to size and letting you explore what it's like to be an insect in a large-than-life world.

Six giant robotic insects, including a praying mantis and a desert locust, make up The World of Giant Insects exhibit.

"This exhibition will engage, educate and entertain our guests on the many facets of these important species," said Chevy Humphrey, president and CEO of the science center, in a prepared media release.

The exhibit will be on display from May 28 to September 5. Admission is $6 in addition to regular admission.
