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 email@example.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!
