Young visitors to the Museum’s Discovery Room are now treated to a brand new Busy Bee Puppet Story with sing-a-long songs, and the chance to join a hands-on activity to make their own model of a bee.
We have a few people to thank for that. First is the College Knowledge and Careers program, funded by JP Morgan Chase. Through this program high students in our Upward Bound Math and Science Center program are working as summer interns with Museum staff to gain work experience in a museum setting, and to learn how to engage families and our youngest museum visitors in the amazing world of science.
Next is the Museum’s ECHOS (Early Childhood Hands-On Science) comprehensive preschool program. Want to learn more about busy buzzing bees, or even take a bee story home with you? The storybook used for the Busy Bee Puppet Story is an original ECHOS storybook, and is available for purchase at the Museum box office. You can find more about ECHOS bees materials at Busy Buzzing Bees.
Preschool Science Time continues on weekends for the rest of the month of July, from 1-5 pm in the Discovery Room. Don’t forget to check out our real busy buzzing bees in our Museum’s bee hive, donated by the Junior League of Miami.
