7th Annual BeeBlitz

Posted on: 6/10/2021 11:27 AM

Join BeeSpotter on Saturday, July 3, 2021 for the seventh annual BeeBlitz! (rescheduled from 6/26 due to rain)

Mark your calendar for the seventh annual BeeBlitz capping 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 and bumble bees on Saturday, July 3. Then, upload your findings to BeeSpotter, the citizen science project run in collaboration between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Department 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 and 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 to learn more.

For the 6th year, Learning Trajectories for Everyday Computing (LTEC-2) has submitted a video for the STEM for All Video Showcase! LTEC-2 is a collaborative NSF STEM+C project that seeks to understand how to integrate computational thinking (CT) into elementary mathematics. The LTEC-2 team has worked to iteratively develop and test integrated fractions + computational thinking lessons and assessments for grades 3 and 4.

We encourage everyone – from researchers to policy-makers to teachers to interested community members – to visit the video showcase, join the discussion, and vote for our video by sharing it on social media!
