There’s been a lot of buzz about bees lately. Our favourite pollinating pals lead interesting lives, and Jeziel got the low-down from Scitech‘s Jane Colwill. 

Jane told the sweet story of how bees collect the pollen, what goes into making honey, and some of the roles of the bees within the hive.

Scitech has its own hive, with neat perspex windows to take a sneak peek into the lives of our stripey chums. And, in case you’re wondering, the honey doesn’t go to waste. It’s shared around between the scientists, and probably makes some cracking toast.

For all the info on the secret life of bees, listen to the full podcast:
