bee eclipse student art

After elementary-school students participated in a study of bee behavior during the 2017 total solar eclipse, researchers leading the project asked the students to illustrate the eclipse from the bees’ perspective “as a way to synthesize their results.” Illustrations such as that of Olivery Ni, then a fifth-grader at Ulysses S. Grant Elementary School in Columbia, Missouri, “show growth in [students’] understanding of animal behavior over the project—many drawings captured the connections between environmental stimuli, bee sensory systems, and flight responses,” the researchers note.
