Learn the teachings from the most sucessfull society in natural history,

the honey bees.

     Coming from a family of beekeepers, and teaching and researching honey bees at U.S. Universities and the Federal Government. I have developed a fun method for teaching  science using honey bees. 


     Simply, I will create challenges, guided by your questions, and we go from there. I will create a personalized learning experience, regardless of your educational background.


     You will find it entertaining, flexible, and help contribute ideas for Inside the hive.TV videos, which everyone can enjoy for free on YouTube.

Dr. Humberto Boncristiani

How does the academy work? 

     First, the academy will teach you how to search for and read scientific publications. Then, through challenges, you'll gain confidence in accessing information from scientific journals and databases. As you become more comfortable, you can select specific articles that interest you. I will use these articles to create content for you to learn the technical components and biology behind it. If you want to study other subjects related to bees, simply choose different articles and we start over. Enjoy!

Who is the academy for?

     The academy is for everyone, especially those individuals who enjoy the mission of the Inside The Hive YouTube channel and want to support it. Or further, if you want to get involved on the challenges and take full advantage of the academy by creating your own learning path. 

What if my financial situation changes?

     We understand that life can throw unexpected curve balls, and we completely understand if your circumstances change. If you decide to leave or scale down your membership tier, there is no problem at all.  You can always enjoy Inside The Hive YouTube channel for free.  We are always here for you, and if things change, you are always welcome to rejoin at any time.
