Bee Dance

Development (JavaScript and JQuery programming, 2d animations of bees dancing) of an interactive simulation for K-12 audiances about honey bee communication called The Way of the Waggle Dance

Bees communicate with one another using special dances inside the hive. These dances convey disance and direction information about where to find high quality flower patches outside the hive. The Way of the Waggle Dance teachers users how to interpret bee dances, then puts their knowledge to the test in a game allowing them to control the movement of a bee on a 2D field. The user is shown a bee dance at random, then needs to find the corresponding flower as quickly as possible to win the level, while avoiding enemy wasps.

This activity is fully functional on tablet and phone, and is compliant with W3 standards and best practices of web development.
