For the ninth year, the University of Illinois Department of Physics is bringing "Science at the Market" on selected Saturday mornings to Urbana's Market at the Square. Various U of I and other experts will be on hand each week with demonstrations illustrating the science they represent and to answer questions from the public about the researchers' disciplines.

For example, you may learn about:

  • What birds and other animals live in Champaign-Urbana parks
  • Floating superconductors
  • Solar flares via solar telescopes
  • Pants that don't stain thanks to nanotechnology
  • 3-D printing by the Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL)
  • Lizards and other animals shown by the Graduate Students in
  • Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (GEEB)
  • And a lot about bees, bumblebees, and pollination on Polinators' Saturdays

July 2018 Schedule:

  • July 7, 2018: Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • July 14, 2018: Illinois Natural History Survey - Insect Collection
  • July 21 2018: Robotix

Join BeeSpotter.org on Saturday, June 16, 2018 for the fourth annual BeeBlitz!

Mark your calendar for the fourth annual BeeBlitz kicking off National Pollinator Week. Nature lovers and concerned citizens in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio are invited to get outside and snap pictures of honey & bumble bees on Saturday, June 16th. Then, upload your findings to BeeSpotter, the citizen science project run in collaboration between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign'sDepartment of Entomology and the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education.

The name BeeBlitz is derived from a BioBlitz, an activity in which all of the biodiversity in a specific area is examined, to provide a snapshot in time of the flora and fauna present. We want to know what species of honey & bumble bees are seen, and where they are, on this day. We encourage veteran and aspiring bee spotters alike to venture out on a nature walk and participate in the blitz.

Visit the BeeBlitz webpage for BeeBlitz events scheduled in the Champaign-Urbana area.
