Did you know that the hexagon – a six-sided polygon – is the most efficient and economical shape in nature? That’s why bees build their honeycomb using this shape. Unlike circles, hexagons leave no gaps when interlocked. And when compressed, the shape makes the structure even stronger… clever bees!
When you look into it, you’ll find there are lots of hexagons in nature – the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, snowflakes, turtle shells, snakeskin, even groups of bubbles!
