Econ Group is pleased to support a new educational initiative, the 'Interactive Beehive'. Designed with the education and engagement of children in mind, this state-of-the-art beehive offers a unique and immersive experience that combines learning, fun, and environmental consciousness.
In line with our commitment to carbon reduction and sustainable practices, the Interactive Beehive is a remarkable tool for fostering awareness and appreciation for the vital role bees play in our ecosystem.
Education has always been at the forefront of our mission, and we believe that instilling environmental consciousness in the younger generation is crucial for a sustainable future.
The Interactive Beehive offers an engaging platform for children to learn about the fascinating world of bees, their complex social structure, and the essential role they play in pollination and the production of our food.
What sets the Interactive Beehive apart is its innovative design and user-friendly interface. Equipped with sensors and connected to a digital platform, the beehive provides real-time updates and insights into the lives of the bees. Children can observe the bees' activities, from foraging for nectar to building honeycombs, all from the comfort of a classroom or their own homes. The digital platform also offers interactive quizzes, educational videos, and informative articles to enhance their understanding of bees and their environment.
Furthermore, our commitment to carbon reduction is evident in the construction and operation of the Interactive Beehive. It utilises sustainable materials and integrated energy-efficient technologies to minimise our environmental footprint. By incorporating eco-friendly practices into the beehive's design, the aim is to inspire children to think critically about the impact of their actions on the planet and motivate them to adopt sustainable habits in their daily lives.
The Interactive Beehive is not only an educational tool but also a practical solution for addressing the decline in bee populations. As children become more aware of the importance of bees, they can actively participate in conservation efforts by creating bee-friendly gardens, avoiding harmful pesticides, and spreading awareness among their peers and families. By nurturing a sense of responsibility towards the environment from an early age, we believe that our children will become the advocates and stewards of a sustainable future.
Econ is pleased to announce this particular project has been developed with Woodberry Down Junior School and has already been integrated into areas of the curriculum(especially pollination).
So, join our mission to educate and empower children with the Interactive Beehive. Together, we can make a positive impact on the environment and cultivate a generation of environmentally conscious individuals who will shape a better tomorrow.
“We were impressed with the approach used by you operation team to carry out the works both professional and diligently. Econ were very accommodating to meet our needs from the initial presentations prepared on strategy to mitigate risks and throughout execution of the works and keeping us fully informed and giving us the confidence we needed. The approach of Econ Site supervisors and visiting managers through to operatives on site was always of a high standard and good-natured and we are pleased to give credit where it is due. On site initiatives by the team from demonstrations /videos of emergency procedures when working in asbestos enclosures and working with consistent site uniforms contributed to the site achieving a Kier ‘Blue’ for best practice and working above standards. This was an excellent example of collaborative working and a joint approach to promptly overcome some of the challenges with asbestos and how best to deal with this along with working near challenging neighbours’ properties, the school and the church.”
