The Buzz About Pollinators
On Wednesday, we got the chance to work with an Allegheny professor and her student researcher, who specialized in pollinators. We went outside and collected specimens using the most high-tech equipment: plastic cups and dish soap. Next, we used microscopes to examine honey bees and their own specimens, which yielded some amazing results. We found a variety of bees as well as other insects and got to see them up close and personal with the microscopes. Over all, it was a fascinating experience.
