We see Ted Dennard alongside other beekeepers working as the Bee Cause Project logo — a yellow seal of a cartoon bee with a pencil stinger — appears on screen. Upbeat music plays in the background.

[Ted] and others chat in the background: “Okay. Alright.”

[Ted] holds a few empty frames up to the wall.

He says, “We don't have any honey frames, do we, that we can pull out?”

We see [Ted] talking to the other beekeepers. “How about somebody puts alternate frames in here, then I'll go to grab the packages, and then we'll get rocking and rolling.”

Transition to [Ted] smoking the beehives and carrying frames with the help of the others.

[Ted]: “Okay, so we're going to take these.”

[Ted] places a frame in the backseat of a car and says, “We are nearly ready to go.”

We see [Ted] driving the car.

He says, “Okay, I'll let the teacher know that we're coming with our bees to reinstall their observation beehive.”

We see bees moving in the frame.

[Ted] continues: “We got two packages of bees, which is about 30 to 40 thousand worker bees and two queens, separated in half and half.”

[Ted] talks to the camera while driving. “It'll be fun. Locally, I think 10 or 11 that we've done, and then we have 730 or something like that that are stretched. So these are schools across all 50 states, all Canadian provinces, Haiti, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. So we're trying to really raise a generation that will understand, love and protect the honeybee. So that's kind of a succinct mission statement for the Bee Cause Project. It's fun. It is. This is my favorite part of what I do.”

Transition to students waving at the camera and making silly faces as they enter their classroom.

We see students carrying beehives along the sidewalk outside a school with the help of [Ted]. They approach a group of students.

[Ted] talks to the students. “How's everyone today? So are we excited to get your honey bees back in the classroom?”

[Ted] pulls out a piece of the beehive, which is covered in bees.

He says, “This is the queen.”

He holds the piece out to the students and asks, “Is everybody comfortable passing it?”

We see [Ted] pulling a handful of bees out of the hive.

[Ted]: “This is what your teacher’s about to do. They're actually tickly. They’re kind of fuzzy. I think they're cute.”

Transition to the teacher holding a handful of bees and smiling. The students cheer for her.

We see [Ted] shaking bees out of the hive. The students hold out their hands and ask to hold some, and another teacher holds up a handful of bees.

One student says, “I can't really believe how much there is in there.”

Another student speaks to the camera: “There is the queen bee, the drone bee, and the worker bees.”

Another student says, “The way bees give each other honey, they stick it on each other's tongues.”

A different student explains, “Whenever queen bees get into arguments together, they're either going to try to ward off each other or one of them's going to have to die.”

Another student speaks. “Drones are very lazy.”

A student sips some honey out of a honey stick and says, “I like that we get to watch the bees every day.”

In the background, other students sip on honey sticks.

A student says, “Whenever you see a bee, don't just freak out because bees, they only have one life and they don't want to sting you. So don't just go freaking out and try to kill her or something. Just stay calm and walk away.”

The first student returns, saying “I picked her up off the ground and it crawled up my arm over here and it just tickles a lot. And then I blew it off into a brush and it flew away.”

We see [Ted] at the front of the classroom pointing to the different parts of the hive on the wall.

[Ted] says, “You have some honey right here.”

[Ted] speaks to the students. “You have a class to go to and thank you, thanks for loving the bees. I love this more than anything. Thank you.”

The students all call out “thank you.”

Transition to [Ted] back in the car, talking to the camera.

[Ted] says, “How fun was that? You see why I said that's my favorite part? It is just great. Kids… You saw it, right? How smart they are. That's maybe the most rewarding part, is just how much they know about bees and just how educated they are. And I really do believe, like, they know way more than their parents. And so that means the goal, the mission, is working for the Bee Cause, you know, and that can choke me up because it's just like, wow. Wow, wow.
