Biology Letters published a report Wednesday conducted and written by a group of 8- to 10-year-olds from an English elementary school investigating the way bumblebees see colors and patterns. The scientific organization — which is more than three centuries old and includes some of the world's most eminent scientists — said the children reported findings that were a "genuine advance" in the field of insect color and pattern vision."

maybe i will make each kid do a science fair project board......half the parents think it's 'too hard' and the other half want to do it so they can compete amongst themselves to see which parent has the best project...
