Learn about all things bees!
The workshop includes a demonstration of bee keeping equipment including bee suit with veil and the ‘smoker’.
Students will have the opportunity to view and pass around actual hive ‘waxed frames’, demonstrating up close the hexagonal shape of each honey/brood cell.
Students will be shown a variety of still photos and short videos showcasing bees inside a beehive, the different parts of the hive including the brood (nursery) boxes and the honey ’super’, as well as photos of eggs, larvae, pupae and, bees hatching.
Students will also discover how honey is produced, how humans work with bees and, of course, bee safety and how to not get stung!
