The 4-H Beekeeping Project helps youth learn about bees and how to be a beekeeper. Beekeeping offers many hands-on educational experiences, from learning about bees and nectar to learning to raise bees and produce honey. The 4-H Beekeeping Project is divided into three divisions. Division I, Understanding the Honey Bee, covers information on the basic facts of beekeeping: the types of bees, the honey and wax they produce, the plants that attract bees, and the equipment a beekeeper needs. In the ﬁrst year, youth are not required to have any bees, but prepare to take care of a honey bee colony of their own. Division I Beekeeping is intended to help youth learn about: the types of bees, honey, and wax they produce; the plants that attract bees; the equipment that a beekeeper needs; how to compile beekeeping records; how to present the results of their work to others; how to develop inquiring minds—the habit of asking questions and searching for answers.
