Aubree Davis Earns Silver in China at Global Natural History Day

Sacred Hearts Academy sophomore Aubree Davis earned a Silver Medal for her presentation on Bees at Global Natural History Day in Chongqing China, July 19-25. Davis’s research explored the critical role bees play in food pollination, the global economic impact of bees, and factors contributing to causing a worldwide decline in bee populations. She provided an analysis of the loss of pollinators on the world’s food supply and offered solutions for addressing the decline. Sacred Hearts Academy Social Studies teacher Kinga Wojitas served as the advisor on the project and accompanied Davis to China.

Teams from 90 countries throughout Asia, China and the United States participated in this year’s GNHD, presenting topics relating to the theme, “Scale of Nature: Micro to Macro.” The challenge given to students was to explore a science-related topic by conducting in-depth research using reliable information and rigorous analysis. Students shared their understanding of science by presenting their analysis to a panel of scientists, researchers, and educators.

The educational program is presented by the Behring Global Education Foundation. Global National History Day is an international educational program designed to inspire elementary and middle school students’ interest in natural science and history.
