Hungry for Change makes connections between populations and the environment! Are plastics truly with us forever? How do plastics impact our ecosystems? The Accelerate level Science Unlocked curriculum kit Hungry for Change is an in-depth experience for a young biologist or conservationist.

In this kit, students will learn about a unique animal that can safely eat polystyrene. It even includes pre-paid coupon for 30 mealworms shipped free to you! Hungry for Change comes with a full-color Student Curriculum Workbook and Teacher Guide. It is a phenomenon-based approach, designed to fully engage students in mealworms eating polystyrene. Through a series of experiments, students will become absorbed in life cycles and food webs, including how plastics impact ecosystems. As part of a special program from Home Science Tools, this Accelerate level kit will provide over 8 hours of knowledge, educating your student about an amazing animal that can break down plastics on our planet and how the relationships between species are impacted by plastics.
