Hunter Innovation and Science Hub will focus its 2021 National Science Week celebrations on the theme: “Pollination Produces our Food.” Community members will gain greater awareness of the importance of pollinators such as bees and other insects to modern society through interactive displays, lectures, demonstrations, site visits and a Festival, with activities presented at Newcastle Museum, Maitland Regional Museum, Lake Macquarie City Council Galleries and the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens. Other highlights will include a project to map the population of suburban hives and Pollination in the Gardens, a two-week series of interactive exhibits and experiments developed and presented with the Hunter Valley Amateur Beekeepers Association. The Children’s University will also co-create hands-on STEAM bee activities with local artists and Maitland Regional Museum will present activities including a beekeeper talk on bees’ lifecycle, types, food & honey and the presentation of a “Design in honey” production display.
