This kit was a huge hit with our after school STEM students! I was apprehensive that some students would be turned off by the insects, but it turned out to be their favorite unit of the year. Most of the students were brave enough to try the edible insects- the favorite flavors were Salt and Vinegar and Sour Cream and Onion Crick-ettes. This unit ended up being taught during the Brood X cicada emergence, which worked out perfectly. We'll definitely be using this again!
