Beekeepers develop HoneyBEE app for fun and learning

Dr. Meghan Milbrath, an extension and outreach specialist at Michigan State University, and Tammy Horn Potter, Kentucky State Apiarist, have designed a new app for the development of beekeeping skills through the management of virtual honey bee colonies. The name is HoneyBEE, short for Beekeeping Electronic Education. HoneyBEE will be a real-life simulation game that will enable players to experience the joys and challenges of keeping a hive in a variety of environments.
