SciGirls to Feature Bioscience Students

Posted by Community Relations Department on 11/28/2012

SciGirls, a PBS television program that showcases bright, curious “tween” girls putting science and engineering to work in their everyday lives, will feature three Bioscience students in a November 30 episode.  The episode is called Bee Haven, and has been bills as “the latest buzz from downtown Phoenix: the SciGirls use math, mapping and data visualization to prove that their urban beehive can thrive in an urban environment.” Now sophomores Briana Diaz Monica, Hernandez and Damaris Moore were selected for the episode and teamed up with an ASU professor and The Grow House, for a weeklong filming in March to learn how to build a beehive, raise honey bees and produce honey.
