Beginning BEE Schools – Two Virtual Options
Are you interested in learning about bee keeping?
NC State University will be offering 2 virtual options this year to help you achieve that goal!
2021 Beginning BEE School- two options for online beekeeper training for new or would-be beekeepers.
Our two online BEES schools will allow students to view the ‘Beginner’ Beekeeper Education & Engagement System (BEES) content but still interact online with each other and NC State University instructors. In two separate offerings (one-week-long “self-paced” course and one all-day course), we will learn about honey bee biology, management, and industry including live Q&A using Zoom with instructors.
OPTION #1: Week-long “self-paced” course
WHEN: February 10–17, 2021
WHERE: Online Beekeeper Education & Engagement System (BEES) & Zoom
COST: $84 registration (20% discount)
HOW: Students will enroll in the ‘Beginner’ level BEES courses and learn the online content on their own time and at their own pace. Afterward, on Wednesday, February 17 at 7 p.m., we will hold virtual “office hours” with Dr. David Tarpy to discuss what you have learned and answer any lingering questions. Attendees will then have a total of 30 days access to the course content, have the opportunity to take the comprehensive online quiz, and download their personalized eCertificate of Completion if they pass at 80% or better.
OPTION #2: Day-long “live” course
WHEN: Saturday, March 13, 2021
WHERE: Zoom (live webinar)
COST: $75 registration (29% discount)
HOW: Students will register and be sent instructions on how to attend a Zoom session. Registered attendees will watch each recorded BEES lecture (15 in total), each followed by a short live Q&A through Zoom. Attendees will receive copies of lecture notes and a personalized eCertificate of Completion.
