The Honey Bee field trip offers Students an opportunity to visit a Honey Bee Farm. Here they
will learn many relevant facts about one of the most important creatures in Nature - Honey
Bees, and related areas such as Honey, Beehives, how Beehives and Bees are usually
destroyed, consequences of this to Humans and Agriculture and whether there are better
alternatives of dealing with Beehives. Under close supervision of a trained Beekeeper,
Students can safely observe, touch and handle Bees and learn about Bee farming and the complex
structure of Beehives. Guidance and Resources will be provided to interested Students for
undertaking further Bee related projects or playing a part in Social Awareness videos.

1) Check with your Parents if they extracted honey from a Beehive or saw this process being done. While extracting were bees killed and eggs destroyed?
2) Check differences in how Natural Honey used to be and how it is now.
Understanding the Processed honey, naturals honey and ingredients.
Project - If your School or Parents have farmland can you extend knowledge to implement a Apiculture Project- understanding Processed Honey, Natural Honey and Ingredients?
What is a Drone Bee & Queen Bee?
What type of Bees are present in India.
What are Artificial Hives?
Is Honey commercially available in the market as PURE?Or processed with Glucose/Sugar?
How can we identify the Purity of Honey?
Your own questions If any?
Trippko Team will help to create social awareness on stopping the killing of bees through making of videos with active and interested children. This will also be done through Messages to Local and Central Agriculture ministries about enhancement of focus for next generations. Schools can also get involved in experiential Apiculture projects.
It was wonderful experience for kids. One of its kind. They have gained intensive knowledge on the subject of honey beeing. The practical exposure of seeing the bee hive closely and seeing their colony was the best part. Adding to it, Parents were deeply impressed by actions taken by management to initiate these intensive field trips. So, we recommend Trippko and Honey Beeing Trip to all the Schools as we were hugely satisfied by hassle free communication and execution by Trippko.
