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.

A Bombuster year for BeeSpotter!

Posted on: 9/26/2018 12:31 PM

For the second year in a row, BeeSpotter has reached a record number of verified submitted bee spottings!

In 2017, bee spotters contributed over 800 spottings to the project, the most BeeSpotter had ever received in a single season up to that point. This year, bee spotters surpassed last year's number by late August and the hope was to crest 900 this year.

Well, as it turns out, those goals were too modest. BeeSpotter just identified their 1,000th spotting! At the time of this writing, BeeSpotter has 1,016 verified bee spottings for 2018. The 1,000th spotting of this year was a honey bee submitted by the St. Louis Bee Brigade. Thanks go out to the Bee Brigade for all their excellent work spotting bees and submitting those spottings these past two years!

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

September 2018 Schedule:

  • September 1, 2018: AstroIllini
  • September 8, 2018: Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB)
  • September 15, 2018: Staerkel Planetarium and C-U Astronomical Society
