Blackawton Bees

date. 2010

location. Blackawton Devon

a group of 8 to 10 year olds were carefully facilitated through a scientific enquiry. They immersed themselves in the world of being a bee through playing. They researched about bees, including questioning neuroscientist Beau Lotto who acted as a walking embodiment of a literature review. The children created questions based on their curiosity, they asked Beau can bees count? Why can bees ... What if it's because ... Then they designed a puzzle or game based on their curiosity for what bees could do. Could the bees solve their puzzle?
