Explore Term Projects with BIF Bumblebees and Yellow Jackets

We know learners thrive when they have the freedom to explore knowledge outside of the classroom; that learning is most effective when students are empowered with autonomy and engaged by interests and passions interwoven into content spanning discipline and field.
