2015: Honey Bee Project


2015's program ran from July 6th–17th with 15 young women from Columbus area middle schools. These young women were mentored during their two-week study by five women who study at OSU and work in the art, design and technology field and the director of the program.

This year's program looked at the honey bee, its benefits, threats and cultivation. Projects focused on creating 3D animation with Maya on the topic of the honey bee, its history, value and preservation needs. We visited the Stratford Ecological Center in Delaware, OH as a basis for our understanding of the honey bee.
