First visit to local school

After 11 years, finally, we’re invited by a local school for the very first time. We had a great time presenting to the entire secondary school for its science week at Hong Kong Baptist University Affiliated School Wong Kam Fai Secondary School.

Meet Jabba the African Bullfrog

Jabba is a unique animal of ours. He’s not an eye candy type of critter that makes people say “Ahhh so cute” like our hedgehogs or baby chinchillas do. He doesn’t make much people exaggerate their facial expressions like our snakes and tarantulas do. But he’s the only one that causes people to keep saying both “Yuck! He’s so ugly” and “Can I hold him now? Can I give him a kiss?” at the same time. Pure contradiction 🙂

When it comes to presenting these not-so-good-looking critters, it tests the skills and experience of the presenter. You can either make people hate it more or change their mind to start appreciating something they’ve disliked for a lifetime.
