Their experiment consisted of finding out if bees – Bombus terrestris -could be trained to use different colour patterns to distinguish sugar water from water with salt in it. We also discovered that science is cool and fun because you get to do stuff that no one has ever done before Blackawton pupils’ principal finding. Sometimes the small square was blue and the surrounding square was yellow and sometimes it was the other way around.

Of course, the reason that the paper has attracted so much attention is because of the kids. Their experiment consisted of finding out if bees – Bombus terrestris -could be blackwaton to use different colour patterns to distinguish sugar water from water with salt in it. The experiment was as follows. Their “modest but cleverly designed” science project was published in Biology Letters in what the journal’s editor called a “world first”.

The experimenters have asked a scientific question and answered it well.
