A group of pupils representing Beekeeping Club and Digital Leaders visited Cardiff University School of Pharmacy for a lesson on pollen identification and to see the University's hive monitor in action. After half term, Bridgend College will be visiting school to deliver a workshop to our Digital Leaders group to teach them the skills to program a Raspberry-Pi computer so that we can film and listen to the bees in our hives.
Our new beekeepers have been learning how to put on their protective suits so that there are no gaps for inquisitive bees!
Our pupils were busy last Monday making planters using recycled pallets. After much hammering they were able to fill their planters with compost and sow seeds of their choice.
