Imagine looking into the trees. Observing the beautiful leaves and all of a sudden the branch starts to walk away. The sneaky walking stick insect is so amazing at camouflage that they sometimes even wave back in forth in the breeze exactly like the tree it's in. The stick insect also has only one interesting way to defend itself from predators. Can you guess what it could be? In this class, we will learn all about different types of stick insects. We will explore their life cycle and if their mothers take care of them or leave them on their own. We will see pictures of tiny stick insects and giant stick insects. We will see how they change throughout their life. We will also explore what they eat and what eats them. Through pictures, videos, games, and a project we will have fun learning about the interesting insects.

Ms. Amber is the greatest teacher possible! She is exciting, engaging, and seems to show a general love for teaching children! The material is excellent, and our child is not the only one who has learned a few things during the classes! These classes are one of the best opportunities out there!
Add more class options taught by Ms. Amber, especially in the evening/following school hours, as well as adding more openings for free classes/maybe give past students a head-start for access to the free classes?
