Wonderful day yesterday at Newbattle Bee Academy working with Roslin Institute delivering a Bio Blitz event as part of the Midlothian Science Festival. Many thanks to the Roslin team Dr Mark Barnett, Matthew Richardson, Michael and Danni, and the NBA team David Hennessey, who had the kids enthralled talking about pollinators and Malcolm Evans who did a great job of crowd control. The kids were a delight and the adults had an equally enjoyable time learning all about bees and pollinators, viewing microscopes with slides of bee anatomy and the wee beasties that live in the earth in the garden, and how bees live in the hive. Trying on a bee suit was very popular. Honey tasting and colouring in were other top highlights. Looking forward to the 2020 Midlothian Science Festival....
