At Sarah’s Science, we make learning science fun!

Join us on Saturday, May 18th for our fan-favorite Mantis Mania workshop where your kids will learn about the life cycle and natural history of the praying mantis. From breeding drosophila (baby mantis food) to watching mantids emerge from their egg cases, your kids will get to experience nature’s wonders up close and leave the class with their own pet mantis!

* Dates: May 18, 2019
* Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm OR 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
* Locations: Learning Without Limits School in Oakland
* Price: $90/child, includes all materials and a snack

Each child will bring home:

* Two praying mantis egg cases (50-500 baby mantids will emerge!)
* One hatchery container (a home for your mantis)
* One praying mantis booklet (with care instructions and activities)
* Two vials of drosophila (fruit flies) with growing medium (to feed your mantids)
* One fruit fly booklet (to track your fruit fly supply)
* And a super cool Mantis Mania t-shirt!

This is a perfect opportunity for your kids to learn some great green science while you take care of errands or soak up the sun. Space is limited. Don’t wait, enroll today or call (510) 581-3739.
