These are bee-utiful!
Whenever we think of bees and their homes, we immediately think of beehives. But did you know, there’s a rare solitary bee species that lives in what’s called a ‘flowers sandwich’?
Known as osmia avosetta, these bees create colourful three-tiered petal arrangements used to protect their young. These flower sandwiches are so stunning, you’d think you’re looking at a sculpture.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
