How A Bee Thinks
October 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This one hour talk led by Baltimore City Master Gardener, Michael Andorsky will cover topics such as: honey bee intelligence as it relates to navigation and bee decision making, similarity between the bee swarm and the human brain, what honey bees have taught engineers about designing robots.
Michael Andorsky, a retired pediatrician, is Baltimore City Master Gardener Board Secretary and co-chairman of POLIN, the pollinator initiative committee of the Baltimore City Master Gardeners. He also studies bees as a volunteer for the US Geological Survey in Beltsville, MD. These combined interests have led him to help try to avert the threats facing our pollinators by lecturing on pollinator and gardening issues. Among their many services and educational activities, Baltimore City Master Gardeners help install pollinator gardens throughout Baltimore.
