Level: DBH3 - DBH4

Challenge: Several traps will be designed to capture Asian wasps and identify the most effective. We will be with an entomologist and then design three traps and try three substances to attract wasps.

Notes for teachers: The key to this example lies in the researcher, since the lack of help from an entomologist or beekeeper would make the project very difficult. In addition to technical assistance, when working with the expert, students will feel that the project is more authentic. The most difficult thing has been obtaining the authorization to place traps in hives.
