I'm prepping some cool content for the Gardening Blog here on The Rock Father (if the weather would actually stay warm for more than a day), and while I'm still getting things together, the folks at PBS Digital Studios have a new installment of the It's Okay To Be Smart series that fits in well with the gardening theme. It's no secret that bees are a swarm of garden helpers, but have you ever wondered how they know what to do... or which flowers to approach? Well, there's something electrical involved, and somehow Dr. Joe Hanson manages to bring HE-MAN into the mix. I'm not joking... MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE in a science video to share with your kids. Seriously, just watch "Electric Buzzaloo" below:

It's Okay To Be Smart is produced by PBS Digital Studios as a video offshoot of the blog of the same name. Check out  http://www.itsokaytobesmart.com/ for more.
