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.

Join us for the first of a series of classes where science and art come together at HiveBio Community Lab!

A pellet, in ornithology, is the mass of undigested parts of a bird’s food that some bird species occasionally regurgitate. The contents of a bird’s pellet depend on its diet, but can include the exoskeletons of insects, indigestible plant matter, bones, fur, feathers, bills, claws, and teeth.

In this workshop we will learn about the biology of owl pellets: how they’re formed, what they’re used for in ornithology. Each student will learn to carefully dissect an owl pellet to see whats inside. After the dissection, the class will move on to learn resin casting by casting the bones from within the owl pellets in clear resin.

Each student gets to keep their bony creation! Materials included in ticket price.

  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.
