We bring STEMs to life on World Bee Day!

We bring STEMs to life on World Bee Day!
We all know how important bees are to agriculture and biodiversity, and how much they are in decline. In fact it is estimated that there has been a 97% reduction in natural bee and butterfly habitat in the UK since 1945.

What has this got to do with Rapid Education, you might say?

As an educational distributor we are passionate believers in the importance of environmental sustainability and protecting the world that our children will inherit. That is why on Thursday 20 May, World Bee Day, we are giving schools the chance to help bring STEMs to life with our World Bee Day competition.

All you have to do to win is tell us what you are doing for World Bee Day, or any environmental initiative at your school either past or planned that furthers your pupils’ understanding of nature, wildlife and the environment. The best entry will be judged to be the winner. To enter email us at education@rapidonline.com with details of your project, or let us know on our social media channels. The winning entry will win 30 bags of Beebombs for their school. Beebombs are native wildflower seedballs mixed with soil and locally sourced Dorset clay, which when scattered onto cleared earth grow into a bee-friendly area of your garden, balcony or outside space. Beebombs are great for children to learn more about the importance of wildlife and what we can do to protect nature.

If you're the lucky winner of the Beebombs, let us know about it on social media and show us how your Beebombs are growing through the summer.

Good luck and bee kind!

Competition terms & conditions:
  • Deadline for entries: Tuesday 18th May at 23:59
  • Only one entry per school
  • Competition not open to current employees of Rapid
  • Please note that there is only one winner of this competition

I work at a SEN school, and as a school we are very focused on outside activities. We are teaching the children to care for animals, growing vegetables and nature. We are in the process of building another forest school so having something like this would be amazing for the children, learning about wildlife and seeing flowers grow.

We have created a new wildlife pond and setting up long grass with wild flowers around our playing field
