BLOSSOMS - Why the Honeycomb of Beehives Has a Hexagonal Shape (Arabic)

Teacher: Fatma Al-Qatani
Presenter: Amjad Al Nour

Summary: Beavers are generally known as the engineers of the animal world. In fact the beaver is MIT's mascot!  But honeybees might be better engineers than beavers!  And in this lesson involving geometry in interesting ways, you'll see why!  Honeybees, over time, have optimized the design of their beehives.  Mathematicians can do no better.
