Classroom Hives has been placing observation honey bee hives in local K-12 classrooms since 2001. Inspired by the hive on display inside Boston’s Museum of Science, these self-contained habitats are specially designed to safely bring small honey bee colonies into the classroom as a daily experience. The exhibit allows viewers to see all of a hive's parts interacting as a whole. With bee populations declining globally, we aim to help educators foster student observation, inquiry, and an appreciation for these fascinating and critically important insects.
