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.
