Lets BEE Scientists

A project where young scientists co-designed an experiment to learn about pollinator preferences in the Blue Mountains. For 8 weeks we learnt about native bees, insect pollinators, experimental design and the scientific process by BEE-ing the scientists ourselves. This participatory action research project is a collaboration with Living Learning, Blue Mountains Home Education Network.

To test our methods, we set up experimental flowers in the Blue Mountains Community Garden and in our own backyards.
