Kids publish bee science

Children from Blackawton school in Devon have had their project published in a science journal, Biology Letters. They devised an experiment to test whether or not bumblebees could recognise pattterns of colour.

Beau Lotto, a neuroscientist, coordinated the childrens’ work with their teacher, but he credits them with the experimental design and results. Lotto said the published paper
“…is a novel study (scientifically and conceptually) in ‘kids speak’ without references to past literature…”
