Aww Snap! a Snapdragon Study

Aww snap, we have a mystery to solve! We need you to watch these bees closely and count how many times they visit the different color snapdragon flowers. Maybe then you can find out why the white snapdragons keep covering the mountainside!

Aww Snap! a Snapdragon Study is a life science game where players get to become field researchers. Observe and collect data, interpret your findings, and try to find your own answer to the mystery of the white snapdragons!
