The Bumble Beep contains 2 oscillators that can be activated by connecting different materials between either the bee’s antennae or the wings. The frequency of the oscillator will depend on the electrical conductivity of the material connected. The oscillator powers a small piezo speaker so we can hear it.
The Class Pack contains:
- 10 x Bumble Beeps
- 10 x CR2032 coin cells
