Sarah Red-Laird, American Beekeeping Federation Kids and Bees Director and International Bee Research Association BeeWorld US Ambassador, will bring our “Kids and Bees” interactive exhibit to the Eastern Apicultural Society Conference on July, 27th, 2016. Kids and their families are invited to campus for a brief and entertaining honey bee lesson, followed by hands-on exhibits. The exhibit session will consist of activities including: beeswax foundation candle rolling, honey, pollen and propolis tasting, a microscope station with bee body parts and pollen, a bee/human nutrition station where kids learn about the importance of planting for honey bees and also their connection to our food, a bee finger puppet making station, an observational beehive, and a display with hive parts, educational frames, and beekeeping equipment.
The program will begin at 2pm, and closes at 3pm.
The Kids and Bees EAS Fly In Program is no cost, but is limited to 30 kids, and is best suited for grades K - 5th.
