Our National Science Week 2018 grant allowed us to introduce 3 species of Stick Insects as well as Praying Mantids into our science department.
We have Goliath, Crowned and Spiny Leaf stick insects. Babies are hatching from eggs every few days now, and we plan to breed more when these babies mature.
During National Science Week 2018 many students enjoyed handling the huge Goliath stick insects, and we have formed a lunch time Funtastick Club for interested students to handle and care for them.
