CNC Beehive Design Challenge by GrabCAD to Save bees.

#CNC #Beehive #Design #Challenge by #GrabCAD to Save bees.

Create a new CNC beehive that is designed for sensor integration and scientific observation.

CNC Beehive for Citizen Science

About this Challenge : Total annual losses of bee colonies in the United States were at 42% in 2015 . We need to create a public science program to study why this is happening, so we can identify the causes, make societal changes, and help our pollinator friends recover as quickly as possible. Your design will help us create an optimized hive for scientific study. The goal of this challenge is to design an open source, CNC beehive that accounts for electronic sensor integration, including microphones and sensor probes. It should accommodate wireless data transmission, solar power and battery, as well as allow for observation without requiring that the bees be disturbed.
