When we think of bees, honey bees and bumble bees often come to mind. But there’s an incredible diversity of bees, says U.S. Department of Agriculture entomologist Theresa Pitts-Singer. 

And those bees, she says, are important to providing us with interesting, delicious and nutritious food choices.

“How boring our meals would be without pollinators,” says Pitts-Singer, research entomologist, USDA-ARS Pollinating Insect-Biology, Management, Systematics Research Laboratory on the USU campus in Logan, who is featured speaker at Utah State University’s Science Unwrapped public outreach program Friday, Feb. 21. She presents “All the Reasons that ‘Bee’,” at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium, Room 130, of the Eccles Science Learning Center on the USU campus.

All ages are welcome and admission is free.

Refreshments and hands-on learning activities conducted by USU students and faculty and community members follow Pitts-Singer’s talk. The presentation is part of Science Unwrapped’s year-long “Food for Thought” series.

Hosted by USU’s College of Science, Science Unwrapped introduces science in a relaxed, entertaining manner. Each event draws several hundred guests, with attendees ranging from preschoolers to senior citizens.
