Expanding Your Horizons
Under the umbrella of Women and Girls pursuing STEM fields, 4ENTO got invited to participate at  “Expanding your Horizons – Geneva” (EYH), their fifth biennial event for young girls. This amazing event is to encourage girls to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

KIDS – Entomophagy
Entomophagy…   …is a term of Ancient Greek origins, and means using insects as a source of food. It is exemplified by insects that eat other insects, birds, amphibians and mammals.

The term also describes human insect-eating, which can be found in parts of North, Central and South America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
