Extended learning…Today we had a special visitor in our Summer Science Lab. Ella DeRose, a former St Stephen alum, visited and worked with the scientists on a special project. Ella is working on her Gold Medal Project for Girl Scouts. Her project is to educate people on the importance of different kinds of pollinators. She talked with the scientists and presented an educational slide show that explained the importance of native pollinators, primarily solitary bees. The highlight of the day was a project that had the scientists build "bee hotels" that will provide safe nesting space for the bees. Ella also provided each of the scientists with a packet of wildflower seeds that they can plant in their garden to provide food for the bees. The group had a great time and have another important project that will help them support and protect our natural resources.
After our bee project, the group finished processing the honey that they began working on yesterday. After mashing the honeycomb, they put the pans in the greenhouse to take advantage of the solar energy and separate the liquid honey from the wax. Today they filtered the honey through a set of mesh screens to remove any debris that was still in the honey, filled up a jar to take home and a jar that we added to the basket that we're donating to the Rock the Grounds basket auction that will take place at St Stephens on Wednesday, August 17th.
