Digital tools can be used for virtually everything–including bees. You heard right. Bee Lab is a project that uses a range of digital tools to help spread the word about bees and beekeeping. Although it might just seem like a hobby for some, beekeeping has become a serious endeavor for many environmental advocates, especially with the rapid decline of honeybees everywhere.
Open-source electronics, tracking systems, forums, and media releases are just some of the ways beekeepers are spreading the word. In reality, Bee Lab revolves around communication and media, connecting people–including the general public–with the science behind bees. This inspiring project is working to bridge the gap between sciences and humanities, all while working from a digital platform.
