Course Overview

STEMLINC video conference: Explore the work of bees by designing a pollination device that works just as hard as a busy bee.  Join Mr. Kengo live from the Liberty Science Center, New Jersey USA with this Junior activity! In this experiment for young learners, we’ll explore the work of bees by designing a pollination device that works just as hard as a busy bee.  (Note: ZOOM platform only)

Year Levels: Yrs P-2

Duration: 1 hour

STEM in a Box: Yes

Yes.  (You will receive for each pair of students: a small balloon, a pipe cleaner (or craft sticks or a plastic spoon), a clothes peg, a cotton ball, and ground pepper/paprika, a plastic lunch box or a small clear plastic container or cup and some small torn up pieces of paper.)

Background Information: 

Every bee has a job. Worker bees clean the hive; others are nurses who take care of the brood; and some are foragers and are responsible for gathering pollen to make the honey. Working together bees are highly organized, yet their brains are about the size of a sesame seed.  Explore the work of bees using a hands-on activity.

Prior Knowledge:

No prior knowledge is required.
