From lessons on the environment and zoology, to nutrition and biology, a beehive is a science class in a box.
Our science and education programs build environmental stewardship by teaching children and adults about the lives of bees, the dire consequences of bee population collapse, and how we can act as stewards for bees and their natural environment.
Our Bee Ambassadors deliver Educational and Outreach initiatives at schools and community events.
During classroom visits, we show our portable, glass observation hive and teaching materials to the children. The portable, glass hive and related materials introduce adults and children to the bees safely. The hive also generates Q&A and prompts a dialogue about bees, our ecosystem, science, and our local food system.

Our science program builds environmental stewardship by providing teachers with lesson plans and activities designed to build reading and science skills, raise environmental awareness, and empower students to help the bees.
Teachers and students nationwide also use The Honeybee Conservancy’s free lesson plans and activity sheets. These teacher-designed lessons build reading and science skills and empower students to help the bees.
Demonstration hives in our BeeVillage locations give children and adults the unique opportunity to experience bees and their environment firsthand. We believe this exposure to the fascinating world of bees gives people the power to move from bee observers to bee advocates.
