Learning About Learning

Learning is so important to life as an animal. We learn how to get food, what food is bad for us, how to communicate with others, how to stay safe, and so much more. Bees also learn. When it comes to learning responses to food, they do it in a way that makes their behavior pretty easy to study.

Take a trip with us today into the Bee Learning Lab. You will run your own experiment, doing several trials to see what factors help bees learn the fastest using classical conditioning. Ready to get started? Visit the Bee Learning Lab

You can also learn more about honey bees when you visit our story Bee Bonanza.
