Class Registration

Whether you are a total novice who just wants to try your hands, or an accomplished scientist looking to explore something new, classes are a great way to get started in the HiveBio Community. Classes are $15 to non members + material fees.

Intro to Biology of Bees

Saturday, July 8th from 2-5PM

Presented by Colette Taylor, Master Beekeeper

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a male and female honey bee? How bees communicate? Why bee stings hurt so bad? Intro to Biology of Bees (1 of 2) will start with the anatomy of a honeybee, and build up to the interaction of bees in a hive, as
well as the different jobs within the hive. As an added treat, we will take a field trip to visit the HiveBio hives at the Center for Urban Horticulture, and possibly get some gifts from he hive.

Before walking to the beehives, anyone who is concerned about an allergy may be tested by our Master beekeeper for reaction. If anyone is known to be allergic, they may remain behind and may ask to be brought back part of the hive (with no stingers).

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between bees, hornets and wasps? Do you know what Neonicotinimides are? Do you know why we are paying way too little for apples and oranges? Biology of Bees (2 of 2) will focus on bees on a global scale. Learn about diseases affecting honeybees, as well as the effect humans are having on bees. As an added treat, we will take a field trip to visit the HiveBio hives at the Center for Urban Horticulture, and possibly get some gifts from he hive.

  1. We saw you at Mini Maker Fair! What a great concept. Now we’re sorry we missed the classes on Dinosaur DNA. Will you be offering another of these anytime soon?

    • Hi Lisa – glad we got to see you at Makerfaire! We don’t have any Dinosaur DNA upcoming classes on the schedule yet, but with enough interest we might be able to make it happen again. In the mean time, feel free to check out our class information page for other upcoming classes and updates on the DinoDNA class status.

  2. Hello! I have a couple questions about this class being “appropriate for all ages.” I have a 10-yr old kiddo interested in this class – we’ve got the laptop situation and basic computer knowhow covered, so I guess my question pertain more to appropriateness of bringing a child to the class.

    Would both child and parent need to be enrolled? Or just a parent to come and generally supervise? Is this something that would be fun for a couple Dino-loving kids to all attend together?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Megan – I checked with our education director and he thinks the content might be too advance for most kids under 13, but we’ll look into possibilities for other Dino classes targeted to a younger audience! Thanks for reaching out.
