Solution to decrease in bee population

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our group knew previously about the decrease of bees all over the world. In some places, people have turned entirely to hand-pollination which is a tedious job. We thought that there should be a faster and more efficient solution to this issue. We decided to create a small bee-like robot that would independently pollinate flowers. It would use the same technique as bees to pollinate the flowers. The robot would run on both solar power and electricity. It would have a camera that would scan the landscape for a certain type of flower, and pollinate it. This small robot would be able to be called back to a set location when needed. Its small size would allow it to get in small spaces such as in between branches. This solution would be practical while decreasing the need for the ever so dwindling bee population.

One of our district goals is to get more students involved in STEM activities. In this project, we worked together to use all four of these aspects to create a reasonable solution to our problem. This robot would help farmers pollinate their crops, while even yielding more because of more precise pollination. It would also decrease the need for expensive bee hive renting or hand-pollination.
