On Saturday June 23, 2012, Prof. Jürgen Tautz will present his bee project to primary school students. Every child in Germany knows Maya the Bee, but can we track the honeybee in her hive and see her on the computer screen in real life as well? Yes, we can. The Internet portal HOBOS allows students to look at real bees in their hive and in the air and gives them a chance to learn from them.

Prof. Tautz will address his background information about the practical aspect of using HOBOS in schools especially to teachers and will encourage...
On Thursday April 26, Professor Jürgen Tautz will compare the honeybee to mammals in his presentation at the Magdeburg Zoo. The key skills of the honeybees that resulted in their success have a striking resemblance to the evolutionary inventions of another group of animals, the mammals. In their division of labor, cooperation and communication the honeybee colonies have attained a top position in the animal kingdom.
