Our STEM and Food-Source Project

Though some may be disgusted at the idea of eating bugs, eating insects can change the world for the better. They're efficient to produce, healthy, and they take only 8-10% of the resources needed for the production of beef and emit 9% of the CO².Enjoyed around the world, insects are delicious, nutritious and sustainable. They are high in protein and - as you’ll see - use less of our precious planet’s resources to farm.

For every IKG of meat we farm we create around 2500 units of Methane gas.

We have been learning about alternative foods and recipes and why they might become a reality for more of us in the future.
