Event description

Description

Come out to the MIX@InnovationHall and hack a real beehive (sans bees). Learn about bees, the internet of things, electronics, sensors, coding and customer centric design.

Open to all students, faculty and staff of George Mason - regardless of experience or background. You must be one of those three.

Come explore, experiment and have a great time with Mason's community of makers, creators, innovators and entrepreneurs. Pizza, coffee, drinks, and snacks provided. It's going to 'bee' awesome.

The Honey Bee Initiative is a collaborative effort between the School of Business and College of Science at Mason.

The MIX@InnovationHall is a student run makerspace at George Mason University.
