My week at BEES started on Monday Jan 26th and finished on Friday Jan 30th. I found this week to be a great experience and highly enjoyable. There was much to learn throughout the week and there was many fun and exciting activities planned.

My favourite part of this week was the Plant Science lecture led by Prof. Peter Jones on Wednesday morning. I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture because of the enthusiasm of Prof. Jones. I found all of the lecturers to be enthusiastic but he was by far the most enthusiastic.

This one lecture managed to change my mind on Plant Science and I am now looking forward to learning a lot more about it.

Going into the Plant Science lecture I wasn’t very excited as I was not hugely interested in the topic of Plant Science, however this has since changed. Prof. Jones was very well educated on the topic he was lecturing on but also because of his enthusiasm, I found it extremely interesting and also very exciting. This one lecture managed to change my mind on Plant Science and I am now looking forward to learning a lot more about it. This is the reason it was my favourite part of the week. I did not expect to come out of the lecture wanting to learn a lot more on the topic, but I did due to my enjoyment of the lecture.

During the week, all the lecturers were very enthusiastic and well educated and researched on their topics. I found this to be very helpful and I have decided that because of this I would love to come back to BEES in the future. I enjoyed both the lectures and all the practical’s which would not have been things that I have gotten the chance to experience in the past. I really enjoyed my time at BEES and learned a lot of new information and experienced a lot of new programmes while I was here.
