NATIVE STINGLESS BEES
ST CLARE'S COLLEGE
In Technology we started by learning the importance of nutrition, then began focusing on the honey that is produced from our hive to make our own recipes and cookbooks that heroes the ingredient of honey. We then started designing our bee hive. Firstly with pencil and paper individually,before merging into groups and combining our ideas...
In Mathematics we used Raspberry Pi devices to collect data from around the college in order to find the best location for our bee hive. Each Raspberry Pi was coded to collect temperature data from different locations in the front garden of the school. The data was then taken from the Raspberry Pi devices, then analysed and presented by each group.
In Science we focused on the different adaptations that bees obtain. Then using our new knowledge, we focused on how these adaptations affect honey collection for the different types of bees. We have created our own websites, social media posts and newsletter articles to promote awareness of the native stingless bees at our school and the local district.
