The article focuses on Honey Bee Online Studies (HOBOS), an interactive teaching concept developed by bee expert Jürgen Tautz. It says that the teaching concept involved tagging the honeybees with codes through the use of a laser. It also mentions that Taut and his team conceived a specialized beehive with sensors, thermographic cameras, and measuring devices. Tautz explains that the project began by using radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags.
