Massasoit STEM Native Bee App
Massasoit Community College’s native pollinator research team has a new way for anyone to follow our research with up-to-date pollinator data from our six test sites in Plymouth County. We recommend this data dashboard as a learning tool for teachers as well as a way for interested scientists to access high quality monitoring data on local native bees. The database starts in 2016 and has results from bi-weekly sampling data from each subsequent year.
The research team is made up of Massasoit faculty, staff, and students who design and implement all aspects of this research project. Our students collect and prepare the data that populates the database viewed by this dashboard. The dashboard itself was designed and created by a Massasoit STEM student named Alexander VanHelene and was created in the R statistical programming language.
