What a great Bee Club today, together we studied how our bees make honey including all the science that goes into this fascinating process. Concentration, evaporation and enzymes galore, the children were 'surprised' to learn how the bees 'regurgitate' nectar into each others mouths to add enzymes to the nectar collected from flowers... resulting in the honey we recognise. Simon did a superb job 'fanning' the honey to reduce the water content in our experiments, (he got very tired arms flapping!!)
Everyone enjoyed tasting 5 different honey samples and voting on their favourite.... Of course Heron Hill honey came out top! Science tastes good we discovered!
