COSAM’s Outreach department invites you to Science Pub! Join Dr. Michael Smith from Auburn University’s Department of Biological Sciences for a talk titled “Honey bees have architectural skills beyond our wildest hexagonal dreams.” This talk will highlight that Honey bees are renowned for constructing perfectly hexagonal cells, but natural nests aren't perfect, and sometimes hexagons can't build with the available space. Explore all the irregularities that arise in natural nests, and the "architectural tricks" that honey bees use to solve them. Unlike brainless automatons, these bees seem to have some skills up their sleeves. Register online!
