WHY AN OCTOPUS?

The octopus is our amazing mascot for many reasons.

 

  • They have nine brains giving them high intelligence and unique problem-solving skills.

  • They have eight arms each able to move independently which makes them able to test, learn, and do multiple things at once.

  • They have three hearts pumping blue blood which helps them thrive in uncomfortable waters.

  • They use camouflage to quickly adapt to fit into any situation. 

  • And they have their own unique DNA, often described as an alien which resonates with those of us who may feel like we don’t fit in.
