Book Launch: Turn This Book into a Beehive! with Lynn Brunelle
Educators and family and friends of children are invited to an early evening reception, Friday, April 13, from 5 - 7pm for Bainbridge Island author Lynn Brunelle in celebration of her new book, Turn This Book into a Beehive! and 19 Other Experiments and Activities that Explore the Amazing World of Bees. Then watch our calendar for a hands-on, kid-friendly event later in April.
Lynn, a leading advocate for bringing science home to kids, introduces young readers to the amazing mason bee, a non-agressive, super pollinator that does the work of 100 honeybees. Twenty activities and experiments reveal more about bees -- use a balloon and static electricity to understand how pollen "leaps" from a flower, make a bee buzzer to demonstrate how bees' wings make their buzzing sound, then use perforated pages in the back, along with the cover, to create a literal beehive for mason bees.
It's the real buzz on bees, delivered in the most ingenious and interactive way. Come celebrate with Lynn, and learn how STEM education can literally rock both at school and at home.
Light refreshments will be served at this event, which is geared toward adults. Educators who buy books for the classroom will receive our 20% educator discount.
