Over the last four months Kidzu has had it’s own kid scientist named Fran. Fran is an eighth grader and she is doing her own research project on beekeeping and the importance of bees. Fran has worked with local organizations such as Burt’s Bees and Bee Downtown in order to gain a new insight to the importance of pollinators. As Fran works alongside her mentor and Kidzu’s creative director, Melanie Hatz-Levinson, Fran will post blog posts through the Makery blog. Check for weekly updates and photos about Fran’s adventures as she explores the local area and discovers the importance of bees! The link to Fran’s blog is under the Making at Home tab on the top of the blog page. Her blog name is called Student Scientist. Check it out!
