BeAM Maker-in-Residence Program

Undergraduate participants learned about bees native to the Carolinas and the critical role they play in pollination and thereby food availability. Students worked in the UNC makerspaces to design and build native bee nesting units using wood, metal, and other materials. The nests adorn a variety of garden environments at Carolina, including the Coker Arboretum. This exciting program pairs skilled makers with undergraduate students interested in learning how to dream, design, and build. In Fall 2015, the first Maker-In-Residence led a telescope build project and the Spring 2016 program focused on musical circuits.
