New research competition challenges 11-19 year olds to help save the UK’s bumblebees
Added: November 06 2019

School and college students across the UK are being challenged to generate new scientific discoveries that could be used to help protect the country’s struggling bumblebees. The Big BeeWalk Data Research Competition runs from 5 November 2019 to 7 February 2020. This citizen science survey – in which volunteers identify and count bumblebees they see while walking the same route monthly from March to October – builds a national picture of bumblebee health, and provides early warning of declines. Students could help shed new light on these remarkable insects whose hard work pollinates so many of our fruit and vegetables. The more we understand, the more we can do to reverse before it’s too late. The BeeWalk surveys have strengthened understanding of threats facing bumblebees, including land use changes or climate change. The national curriculum-linked competition is a chance for schools to apply science in a real-life context. There will be many prize categories – with the overall winner will have their work published in the 2019 BeeWalk annual report, and their school will win £250. Submission Deadline: Friday 7th February 2020.
