Primary school students who came in april 2018, to do a scientific experience on field conditions exposed their results to middle school students. 4 classes from 4 different schools were present on Friday, October 5th and attended the workshop. The objective was to highlight the role of pollinators in agriculture using a scientific method. Students had to deduce from different tools what scientists use to collect samples and monitor pollinators in the field, what kind of question they are trying to solve, and what theories they develop beforehand.
