Description

On Friday, January 11th from 9:00 – Noon, local and visiting elementary-aged kids are welcomed to the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Hotel in Ballroom E to participate in the “Kids and Bees” program. This no-charge educational program has been a traditional featured event with the American Beekeeping Federation conference for over 20 years, and is a “don’t miss” opportunity for school groups, home schooled kids, scouts, and clubs. Kids and their teachers or parents can expect a room full of hands-on exhibits under the themes of, “The Art of Beekeeping,” “The Science of Beekeeping,” “The World of Beekeeping,” and “The Future of Bees: It’s Up to You!” Learn about the art and science behind beeswax, honey, pollination, ultraviolet bee vision, and so much more! Students will make their way through each station, engaging with beekeepers and Honey Queens from around the US, and in activities that will harness their senses and imaginations.
