Bees are one of the most important pollinators of our food crops. In the Bees Please! STEM Kit, students will build a flower model to gain a better understanding of pollination. Students will study their bees (each kit has a different species) and then exchange data and information with others in the class to explore bee biodiversity and behavior. Data in this kit comes from an on-going citizen science project that started as a CSU research project.
