Jeff Murray, founder of Classroom Hives,  a now retired master carpenter and hobbyist beekeeper in Cambridge, who first became interested in observation hives in 1974. He and Esther Splaine, a Boston Public School nurse and another bee enthusiast, developed the original idea of classroom observation hives. The first installation went in the classroom of Heidi Lyne, a sixth and seventh grade science teacher at the Mission Hill Elementary School in 2001. The hive was a success and later moved to the classroom of Jenerra Williams, a second and third grade teacher at the Mission Hill School, where it has been ever since. Join Jeff to explore putting an observation hive in your classroom or home!

He has much to share and time to teach you!

The bees, which can be trained to detect diabetes in just 10 minutes, will also be used to produce honey, wax and propolis. Bee Healthy was one of six teams chosen from amongst 2000 entries to compete for $1 million seed capital in Hult Prize, they will pitch at Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting this September.
