British Science Week

Students enthusiastic and intrigued to learn more wasps!

As part of British Science Week, Dr Jonathan Green from the University of Sheffield came to give an exciting talk to year 10 students on wasps. They were shown real samples of wasps from his own collection, including the tarantula hawk moth which lays its eggs in live tarantulas. Students were also shown videos of different wasp behaviours, which they then had to model during a game to produce the most successful colony. Students were very enthusiastic and intrigued to learn more about these interesting organisms.
