This honey bee focused in-school field trip includes a real life hive of honey bees! Barb Kreller has been involved with honey bees for 30 years. Growing up on a hobby bee farm turned commercial honey production farm gave her a lot of experience and knowledge about honey bees. Bee School started with an idea to show a busy honey bee colony safe in an observation hive to the classes where her own children were learning. It was quickly made clear that students, teachers and other staff thought this was a really unique, fun and interesting experience.
Over the past few years Barb has been researching even more detailed information on the life of honey bees planning for the growth of Bee School. We were able to find an awesome new observation hive, and Jason (the head bee keeper) has figured out the logistics of keeping our bees happy and healthy while still allowing Barb to visit your schools, with complete safety.
Open from May 27, 2022 until the end of the school year, our program can bee booked for a HALF DAY or FULL DAY visit to your School. The half day option includes 3 hours presenting in a library, lab, or general use area. Typically this option accommodates 3 class groups of children to hear information on life cycle, the physical and social structure of the hive, and the bee keeping tools and processes to keep the bees healthy and thriving. Of course there is also time for each child to get close to the hive to discover the bees, and the different parts of the hive for themselves.
There is a half day minimum for a Public or Catholic School to select, no matter how many groups would be participating. If you have more than 3 groups, please select the Full Day Program which will allow for up to 6 or 7 classes depending on the school schedule.
Notes: * Edmonton Public School teachers can find me in the vendor list under the name Barbara L. Kreller as the company name.
**All Bee School days begin at 9am. We want to make sure the bees get home to fly as soon as possible, while visiting as many classes as possible, so a half day can not be booked to begin in the afternoon.
***Base price is for events in or around Edmonton. For any other location, Travel fees may apply.
