Join researchers to discover a bees favourite flower and why knowing this information is important

Overview

This event is part of our Summer Science 2021 launch on Wednesday 7 July. A special evening featuring the return of our family friendly Big Summer Science quiz and lightning lecture sessions with some of our incredible 2021 research groups.

Calling all bee saviours, our pollinators are in danger. Factors such as loss of natural habitat and climate change have dramatically decreased our bee population over recent years and the knock-on effects could be huge to both the UK’s food production and local ecosystems.  

Join researchers from across the country as they explore this seemingly innocuous question, which might well save our wildlife and our food.
