“Science is cool and fun because you get to do stuff that no one has ever done before.”

Ok, gotta take a break from the course design marathon to enjoy this:

“25 students, aged eight to ten years old have become the youngest scientists ever to be published in the prestigious Royal Society journal Biology Letters.

Their findings report that buff-tailed bumblebees can learn to recognize nourishing flowers based on colors, patterns and spatial relationships… ‘This experiment is important, because, as far as we know, no one in history (including adults) has done this experiment before.’ Also, ‘It tells us that bees can learn to solve puzzles (and if we are lucky we will be able to get them to do Sudoku in a couple of years’ time).’ ”

Dear kids of Blackawton Elementary School, I bow before your superior awesomeness.
