Bee ecology: A look at carnivorous bees, and flowers’ role in disease transmission

Ecología de las abejas: Una mirada a las abejas carnívoras y el rol de las flores en la transmisión de enfermedades

This month Life Science Cafe and SACNAS (Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) are excited to bring you our very first cafe entirely in Spanish! (Live Audio Translation to English available!) 

Este mes el café de Ciencias Biológicas junto con SACNAS (Sociedad para el Avance de Chicanos/Hispanos y Nativos Americanos en Ciencia) les presentará por primera vez un café totalmente en español. Este café contará con interpretación de español a inglés en vivo.

Life Science Cafe was founded on the idea that science is for everyone and it should be available to everyone! Join us on Thursday, May 26th at 6pm EST, in our foray back into the world of bees with Dr. Laura Figeuroa as we talk about our pollen hungry (and maybe meat hungry!?) buzzing friends.

El café de Ciencias Biológicas se fundó con la idea de hacer la ciencia accesible  a todes, ¡y debería ser accesible para todes! Acompáñenos el Jueves, 26 de Mayo, a las 6pm EST mientras incursionamos enel mundo de las abejas con la Dra. Laura Figueroa mientas charlamos de cierto tipo de abejas que consumen polen, ¡¿ y otras que consumen carne?!
