St. Andrews School of Math and Science (Charleston, SC)
This was our very first Health Fair introducing insects for human consumption and it was a hit! Kids and parents alike enjoyed sampling our breads made from cricket flour, granola made with whole roasted crickets, and ground smoked cricket almonds. We have done two Health Fairs with St. Andrews since then and look forward to many more!-
Ashley Hall Elementary (Charleston, SC)
We got to learn and teach from this bright group of second graders. They even sent us home with a bottle of their own collected honey from the bee farm!-
Stiles Point Elementary (Charleston, SC)
We attended Stile Point Elementary School for their wellness fair alongside some great local wellness companies and played games to educate their entomophagy knowledge!-
Beech Hill Elementary (Summerville, SC)
We brought our chocolate chirp cookies to Career Day at Beech Hill Elementary and educated the first graders on entomophagy and why we should eat insects. We spoke about the hardships of starting your own company as well as the man rewards!-
The Cooper School (Charleston, SC)
We loved our experience at The Cooper School because it gave us a chance to have one on one action with the students! We did a whole lesson on entomophagy and ate some grub! They were all so open minded and adventerous, we were surprised how many raised their hand when we asked who was ready to eat a cricket. They enjoyed it so much we went back for another lesson!
