About the book Skye Blackburn-Lang: Eating Bugs for the Planet!
About this series Each book is written by an award-winning children’s author and follows the real-life stories of some of Australia’s top scientists and inventors, chosen on the basis of their pioneering work. Themes explored include childhood, school, family, and formative experiences, what inspired them to pursue their chosen path, how they persevered in the face of challenges, and what they have contributed to science in Australia.
About Skye Blackburn-Lang: Eating Bugs for the Planet Skye Blackburn-Lang always wanted to be an entomologist. Her unusual childhood pets included ‘Fluffy’ the tarantula and ‘Woodstock’ a giant burrowing roach that blows kisses and has starred in video clips.
Skye followed her dream and studied bug science as well as food science at university. As Australia’s first farmer of edible insects, Skye and her trailblazing team, teach people that insects are an eco-friendly, and delicious, protein. Most of all, Skye loves inspiring the next generation to follow their passion to achieve their career dreams, like she has.
Australia’s top chefs now use Skye’s ingredients, and the book includes recipes for her awesome Choc Raspberry Cricket Powder brownies, and Choc Chip Cricket Powder cookies.
