Senior Keystone Project: Beekeeping and Creating a Sustainable Observation Hive

Keystone Presentation Date: Tues., May 23, 8:50-10:05 am

I’m really interested in pollinator education and educating people about the importance of bees. Many educators use observation hives, with live bees, so that people can look at them up close without fear of being stung. The problem is that those bees usually die because they’re isolated from the hive for a long period of time. I redesigned the observation hive so that is not a consequence: you can bring in the entire hive in one thing so that way none of them dies in the process.
