Environmental Day 28th October 2014
28 October 2014
The International Bee Research Agency and Cardiff University Pharmacy Bee Team led by Prof Les Baillie were invited to St David's Shopping mall for 'Environmental Day' to promote and engage with families and children on the benefits of bees.
We used microscopes to analyse honey, including the honey from our Redwood bees where we have two beehives situated on the roof of the Redwood Building at Cardiff School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cardiff University.
- Make a bee activity - Children were encouraged to make a bee from coloured plasticine. The best bees won spot prizes during the day.
- Bee Fact sheets - Colouring and worksheets were also available, take a look at the BeeWorld Project.
- On-going activity - Visitors were offered the opportunity to view pollen down a microscope and watch a video on the laptop computer, the teams would then inform the public about the research involved.
