The 'Big BeeWalk Data' Research Competition

The competition

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust’s ‘Big BeeWalk Data’ research competition will give students an amazing insight into the ‘real world’ of conservation and research. Students will have the opportunity to access scientific data collected through the Trust’s BeeWalk citizen science project and produce their own unique research project which will contribute to our understanding of bumblebees.

We want students to think outside of the box for this competition. The idea is to try and find their own unique piece of research.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to students aged 11 - 19 in education in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. Starting Tuesday 5 November 2019, the competition runs until Friday 7 February 2020. For full details, including terms and conditions and research guidelines, click on the PDF below.

Young people are making a stand for the natural world and this project will help them to develop the skills needed to contribute to the research that will inform future conservation.
