STEAM Learning Lab – The Buzz on Bees

Today, we are visiting The Farm here in the museum. Tucked into the corner of Kid’s Eye View, The Farm lets museum visitors ride a horse, care for crops and tend to some broody chickens. We especially love the picture of a cute piggy, so today we are going to make a cute piggy of our very own!

STEAM Learning Lab – Hexagon Bubbles

STEAM Learning Lab – Hexagon Bubbles

A hexagon is a shape with 6 sides. Can you think of anywhere in nature that you might be able to find hexagons? They are all over the place! Snowflakes, turtle shells, insect eyes, pineapples, and the honeycombs in beehives all contain hexagons! This is because the hexagon is a very efficient shape. When bees make their honeycombs, the cells are shaped like this because it doesn’t waste any space. Today we are going to make our own hexagons with bubbles!
