A little about me, my native bee workshops, as well as music and creative projects, and PhD research.

Amelie Vanderstock

I am a science communicator, artist and educator conducting PhD research on native bees at the University of Sydney. I use citizen science to explore the diversity and awareness of pollinators in urban community gardens and bushland.

Iā€™m passionate about accessible, playful, and creative approaches to ecological science that involve active participation of our broader community. I am especially interested in involving young people as co-creators of scientific research, and grounding our inquiry in everyday experiences with our local environment- because we can all BEE Scientists.

I share this passion for urban ecology and pollinators through public education events such as workshops, as well as collaborative art and music. It takes collaboration to cross-pollinate creativity, community and ecology!
