For our Ideal Bee assignment, the class was split up into three groups and each group was instructed to design an ideal bee model. Through class discussions and research we learned a lot about how bees are being killed and harmed by environmental factors so our ideal bees had to have some adaptations in order to combat these factors. My group designed the Immuni-Bee, a bee that was immune to the harmful neonicotinoid pesticides with the help of its filtration system which connect to its mouth, removed the harsh chemicals from the pollen and sent the pollen to the intestines for digestion while expelling the chemicals from out of the body. After drawing up a sketch of our bee, our group created a 3D design of our ideal bee through Solid Works software. Since Solid Works was a new software to all of us there was definitely a learning curve when designing the bee, however we were able to overcome these difficulties and we were able to print a 3D model of our ideal bee! You can see pictures of our sketch and 3D printed bee below.
