Amy and her daughter know how to dress for bees-ness.

On Oct. 18, Amy Oyler, of The Scientific Mom, will be taking her learning adventures with her daughter to the stage. Ignite Phoenix will be showcasing 18 speakers as they share their passion, creativity, and sense of humor with the world. Think TED, only 5 minutes instead of 20, and with a lot of pictures.

Amy will be sharing her story of how a single question led her and her daughter out of their yards, through their city, and into the apiary of a real beekeeper, where they became beekeepers for a day. The event begins at 6:30 pm (MST). It will be streamed live on the front page of Ignite Phoenix.
