All about bees! The Bee Lab at the University of Minnesota Extension Service is the place to go for schools or educators interested in a project with bees. Resources offered include beekeeping manuals, videos, bumble bee rearing guides, posters and more. There are also educational opportunities offered which include courses for the public as well as academic and online courses.
We also conduct research projects. The goal of our research projects is to promote the health of bee pollinators. Our primary research focus is on honey bees, ranging from basic studies on mechanisms of social behaviors to applied studies on bee breeding and management. We work as a team to provide the richest learning environment for students at all levels and from all backgrounds.
