A buzzing bee colony has reached capacity and is need of a new hive to accommodate the growing brood! Buzzz Bee, the resident bee architect has located a wonderful new garden along Buffalo Bayou teeming with flowers and trees. Working with Buzzz, students will plan, sketch, and build a model of a hive before presenting their bee-inspired designs to the group. Students will learn about the important role honeybees play in the ecosystem, and about their key design element – the hexagon.
