Science Bear

Science Bear is the fifth Quest Bear to be accessed in the game. To reach Science Bear, you must have at least 10 bees to pass the Brave Bee Gate or have discovered a total of 8 bee types to use the Slingshot.

You can find him next to the Yellow Cannon after going up the ramp between the Instant Converter and the Magic Bean Shop.

If you give Science Bear a Present, you will get: x3 Glue, x5 Royal Jellies, Enzymes, Oil Buff, Enzymes Buff, Glue Buff, and Pineapple Patch Boost x4.

Quests

Science Bear's quests require defeating mobs, discovering bees and collecting pollen for him, and in return, he will give you honey and a stack of Science Enhancement, which increases bee's honey production rate by 25%. On occasion, he may give other items and crafting resources. There are 16 quests in the initial series and 15 in the Translator series.

Research

Science. What's so great about science? Science gives us technology. Technology leads to efficiency. And efficiency means more honey faster! By studying different types of bees... I believe we can gain insights to how they work, and use those insights to increase their productivity! If you help me by doing some research, I'll enhance your bee swarm! Here's what you'll need to do: Collect 20,000 White pollen... Collect 10,000 pollen from the Strawberry Field... Collect 10,000 pollen from the Bamboo Field... And, most importantly... Discover 5 types of bees! Report back when you're research is complete.

-During-

There are two ways to discover new bee: 1) Hatching eggs. Basic eggs have a small chance of hatching into special types. But Silver, Gold, and Diamond eggs ALWAYS hatch into special types. 2) Royal Jelly. Jelly transform your existing bees into different Rare, Epic, or Legendary types. Here's what I'll need to enhance your bees: Collect 20,000 White Pollen... Collect 10,000 Pollen from the Strawberry Field... Collect 10,000 Pollen from the Bamboo Field... And discover 5 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 5 types of bees! And each one seems to work and behave a bit differently. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 125%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Biology Study Biology is the science that studies life. It helps us understand how living things work! That includes bees, bears, and even flowers. Zoology is the branch of biology that studies animals... Entomology is the branch of zoology that studies insects... And melittology is a branch of entomology that studies bees! I use many branches of biology in my studies. But they all relate to honey making somehow! Here's what I need for my next experiment: Collect 30,000 Red Pollen... Collect 20,000 Pollen from the Clover Field... Defeat 8 Ladybugs... Defeat 8 Rhino Beetles... And, most importantly... Discover 6 types of bees! Report back when you're research is complete.

-During-

Each new experiment I do becomes more complex. As a result, they'll require more research from you! Here's what I need: Collect 30,000 Red Pollen... Collect 20,000 Pollen from the Clover Field... Defeat 8 Ladybugs... Defeat 8 Rhino Beetles... And discover 6 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 6 types of bees! Ah, and some very interesting notes on the behaviors of beetles. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 150%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Proving the Hypothesis Scientific method allows us to reliably test things. By systematically observing and measuring things... We can see if my hypothosis [sic] is correct. My hypothosis [sic] is that if you do the following, I can enhance your bees! Collect 35,000 Blue Pollen... Collect 35,000 Pollen from the Pineapple Patch... Defeat 3 Mantises... Defeat 9 Rhino Beetles... And, most importantly... Discover 7 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

-During-

Each new experiment I do becomes more complex. As a result, they'll require more research from you. Here's the research I need from you this time: Collect 35,000 Blue Pollen... Collect 35,000 Pollen from the Pineapple Patch... Defeat 3 Mantises... Defeat 9 Rhino Beetles... And discover 7 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 7 types of bees! Ah, and some nice notes on symbiosis between Mantis and Rhino Beetles. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 175%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Bear Botany Bees and flowers go hand in hand. The flowers provide bees with nectar and the bees pollinate the flowers. Without bees, the flowers wouldn't be able to reproduce... And without flowers, the bees wouldn't be able to make honey! For our next project, we'll be doing some botany. Botany is the science of plants. I believe if we learn more about the flowers themselves. I'll be able to unlock more potential in your bees! Here's what we'll need: Collect 25,000 Pollen from the Dandelion Field... Collect 25,000 Pollen from the Sunflower Field... Collect 25,000 Pollen from the Blue Flower Field... Defeat 2 Spiders... And, most importantly... Discover 8 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

-During-

In the real world, a single bee can visit up to 5,000 flowers in a single day... there’s a reason for the saying “busy as a bee”. You should be pretty busy yourself, taking care of this: collect 25,000 pollen from the dandelion field... collect 25,000 pollen from the sunflower field... collect 25,000 pollen from the blue flower field... defeat 2 spiders... and discover 8 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 8 types of bees! Ah, and some valuable notes on how bees pollinate different type of flowers. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 200%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Kingdom Collection Bears aren't so different from bees. We're related as members of the animal kingdom. That also includes you! Flowers and trees, well those are obviously plants. But mushrooms, those are fungi. an entirely different kingdom. The biological classifications of things are not always obvious. To get a true understanding, we need to look closer! Our next project involves collecting samples from all three of those animal kingdoms. Collect 75,000 from the Bamboo Field... Collect 35,000 from the Mushroom Field... Defeat 2 Spiders... And, most importantly... Discover 9 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

-During-

Animals, plants, fungi... Bateria [sic] and protists [sic] ... Each kingdom evolve differently, but they're all successful in their own ways. Here's what I need: Collect 75,000 Pollen from the Bamboo Field... Collect 35,000 Pollen from the Mushroom Field... And defeat 2 Spiders!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 9 types of bees! Ah, and some interesting notes comparing animal, plant, and fungi cells. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(Thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 225%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Defensive Adaptations When the hive's threatened, bees are quick to attack. Swarming and stinging intruders, that's their means of defense. All living things have had to adapt to survive. Us bears, we grew big and strong. Or intelligent in my case. All the creatures on this mountain took a different approach! Even the plants, let's take a closer look: Collect 60,000 Pollen from the Cactus Field... Collect 60,000 Pollen from the Rose Field... Defeat 4 Scorpions... Defeat 6 Rhino Beetles... And, most importantly... Discover 10 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete!

-During-

Self-preservation isn't always about being strong. Being fast or smart can work just as well! Here's what we need for the next enhancement: Collect 60,000 Pollen from the Cactus Field... Collect 60,000 Pollen from the Rose Field... Defeat 4 Scorpions... Defeat 6 Rhino Beetles... And discover 10 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 10 types of bees! Ah, and some fascinating notes on different defensive adaptations. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(Thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 250%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Benefits Of Technology What was life like before science? In some ways, slow and predictable... And in others, slow and cruel! Without efficient scoopers, a single drought can wipe out our entire honey supply. Without advanced pollen containers, we spent all day walking between the field and the hive. Without cannons and slingshots, we had to fight our way through the fields just to go to the store! It's thanks to technology that we no longer live at the mercy of nature. Contribute to science and make life easier! Collect 75,000 Pollen from the Pumpkin Patch... Collect 75,000 Pollen from the Pine Tree forest... Defeat 2 Mantiss [sic]... Defeat 1 Werewolf... And, most importantly... Discover 11 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete!

-During-

Each new experiment I do becomes more complex. As a result, they'll require more research from you! Here's the research I need from you this time: Collect 75,000 Pollen from the Pumpkin Patch... Collect 75,000 Pollen from the Pine Tree Forest... Defeat 2 Mantiss [sic]... Defeat 1 Werewolf... And discover 11 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 11 types of bees! And some interesting notes on the benefits of multitasking. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 275%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Spider Study There's valuable information to be obtained by observing nature. Many of the problems we save in the fields of science and technology...Have already been solved by plants and animals! Today, I'm curious about spiders. I believe by observing how they move and build those complex webs... I'll be able to enhance your bee swarm! But I'm too busy to go down there myself, I'll need your help: Collect 120,00 White Pollen... Defeat 4 Spiders... And most importantly... Discover 12 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete!

-During-

The silk spiders build their webs with its [sic] remarkable. It's lightweight but strong - able to trap very large bugs! I suspect we could engineer an even better pollen container using it. Anyway, hows the research coming along? This is what I need: Collect 120,00 White Pollen... Defeat 4 Spiders... And discover 12 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 12 types of bees! Ah, and some invaluable notes on the properties of spidertalk. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 300%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Roses And Weeds

I consider myself to be a practicial and rational bear. In line with that, I've always found some things funny... For example, how roses are considered so beautiful, while dandelions are considered unsightly weeds. Do you think if dandelions were as hard to grow as roses, and roses grew as easily as dandelions, it would be the other way around? Let's take a closer look at both: Collect 100,000 Pollen from the Rose Field... Collect 30,000 Pollen from the Dandelion Field... Defeat 10 Ladybugs... Defeat 1 Werewolf... And, most importantly... Discover 13 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

-During-

Things like tastes and what people find pretty are not easy to explain with science. But it's possible! Here's what we'll need: Collect 100,000 Pollen from the Rose Field... Collect 30,000 Pollen from the Dandelion Field... Defeat 10 Ladybugs... Defeat 1 Werewolf... And discover 13 types of bees!

-Completion-

Fascinating! So there are at least 13 types of bees! Ah, and a deeper comparison between roses and dandelions. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 325%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Blue Review Are there innate properties uniting all things blue? We know that blue bees work more efficiently in fields of blue flowers... And that blue Rhino Beetles tend to thrive in blue fields... Our intuition tells us that they must be bound by some underlying property. Something special about blue! But we can't just trust our intuition, we have to investigate scientifically.

Red / Blue Duality Many things on this mountain are divided into groups, one red and one blue. They may look different, but they're actually quite similar. There are red and blue flowers, red and blue bees, and red and blue varieties of both "Bomb" and "Boost" Ability Tokens. What could have led to this parallelism? Are red and blue diametrically opposed? Perhaps they depend on each other? Let's tackle these questions with our experiment: Collect 240,000 Red Pollen, 240,000 Blue Pollen, Collect 240,000 Pollen from the Clover Field, Collect 100 Red Boost Tokens, Collect 100 Blue Boost Tokens, and most importantly, Discover 16 types of bees!

Costs Of Computation In the real world, hives can contain thousands of bees! Stimulating that many bees, however, would probably crash the servers... Each bee requires processing power to allow it to think and move. That's why there's a limit to maximum size of hives in this game! But that number is plenty big enough for us to do some serious research. Let's get back to it: Collect 422,000 Pollen from the Pumpkin Patch... Collect 244,000 Pollen from the Spider Field...

Pollination Practice Speaking of the real world, out there are bees produce honey out of nectar instead of pollen. But real bees still collect pollen! And that plays a vital role in plant reproduction. As bees travel from flower to flower, they collect pollen on their bodies and transfer it between plants. This pollinates the plants, allowing them to produce fruits and seeds. Many plants depend on bees specifically to pollinate them. Because of this, bees are vital for the survival of entire ecosystems! This includes your bees. Let's put them back to work. Collect 870,000 pollen...

Optimizing Abilities A successful hive typically contains a variety of bees that play different roles. The bees on the mountain can be categorized into different groups based on the abilities they produce. Bees that produce "Haste" Ability Tokens help you move faster. Bees that produce "Focus" Ability Tokens help you collect more pollen by enabling critical hits! To best determine the optimal ratio of each type of bee, we'll need to employ a scientific method. Let's give it a shot: Collect 820,020 Blue Pollen... Collect 720,020 White Pollen... Collect 320,020 Pollen from the Sunflower Field... Collect 100 Haste Tokens... Collect 100 Focus Tokens...

Ready For Infrared The colors we see are determined by the frequency and wavelength of electromagnetic radiation. Red has the longest wavelength and lowest frequency of all colors on visible spectrum. If the wavelength were any longer, it would become infrared radiation, and we wouldn't be able to see at all!

Quest Dialogue
Breaking Down Badges The math behind honeymaking becomes increasingly complex as you become a more proficient beekeeper. As you progress, you gain a wide variety of multipliers that combine to speed up the grind! For example, consider the "Honey Per Pollen" statistic. It determines how much honey you get for each pollen you convert into honey. It starts at 100%, which equates to 1 honey per pollen, but can be increased... Through equipment, Gifted Bee hive bonuses, and Badges. Badges are awarded to beekeepers who reach a certain milestone. Each one provies [sic] a permanent stat boost. For example, obtaining the Sunflower Cadet Badge increases you Honey Per Pollen by 5%! As you obtain more Sunflower Badges, that bonus gets higher. You can see all the obtainable Badges and the bonuses they grant you in the Badge Menu. For our next experiment, let's take a closer look at Badges. Earn 1 Sunflower Badge.. Earn 2 Battle Badges..

Subsidized Agriculture I may be a technologically savvy bear… But I’m no stranger to working the land. Here on the mountain we live in a predominantly agrarian society. Our primary export is honey, but we’re also known for the quality of our fruits and seeds. While it’s certainly possible to harvest berries and seeds from fields with old fashioned gathering… It’s much faster to tend to the magical Sprouts that sometimes pop up. Collecting pollen from fields containing Sprouts will cause the Sprouts to grow. When they reach their maximum size, they pop - scattering treats and other rewards all around the field. Working with others is essential to growing Sprouts, especially the rarer ones. Be sure to split up when the Sprouts pop so you can most optimally share the rewards. For our next experiment, I want to investigate Sprout growth more closely. To start you off, I’m giving you a [Magic Bean]. Activate the [Magic Bean] while standing in a field, and a Sprout will immediately grow. I’m aware of the irony of a Science Bear dealing with magical items, by the way. They’re not really magic, you know. Here’s the full list of what I’ll need: Collect 150 Sprout Tokens… Collect 100 Strawberry Tokens… Collect 100 Pineapple Tokens… And, most importantly… Discover 22 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

By combining ingredients we harvest from the fields and monsters... We're capable of creating more advanced and helpful items and tools. Inside the Badge Bearer's Guild beyond the 15 Bee Gate, you'll find a large blender. Using that, you can combine items like [Royal Jelly] and [Treats]... Into more advanced items like [Extracts], [Oil], [Enzymes] and [Glue]! [Extracts] increase pollen gathered of a certain color by 25%... [Oil] increases the movement speed of your collector and bees by 25%... [Enzymes] increases [sic] instant conversion by 10%, and conversion rate by 25%... [Glue] increases the pollen gathered by you and your bees by 25%... And they all last 10 minutes. Perhaps the easiest ingredient to craft is [Gumdrops].

Smart, Not Hard

Working harder doesn't necessarily yeild better results. In most cases, working smarter is far more valuable than simply exerting more effort. Technology itself is the manifestation of this phliosophy. By using our minds to create tools to help us out... Jobs that used to take days can be finished in just a matter of minutes! Field Boosters are a perfect example of this. These machines enhance specific fields for 15 minutes. During that time, you can gather over double the amount of pollen you usually would. You can find the Red Field Booster in the Red HQ... The Blue Field Booster in the Blue HQ... And the general Field Booster beyond the 25 Bee Gate.

Limits of Language

Understanding people is way more complicated than understanding machines. For one thing, different people speak different languages... And even among those who speak the same language, words can have different meanings! As a scientist, this poses a fascinating problem. Could it be possible to create a device that could eliminate this barrier once and for all? I'm talking about a universal [Translator]! Working to create such a device has been a private hobby of mine for years... And recently I believe I've made a breakthrough! If you help me finish this experiment, I'll be able to finish an early prototype. With that [Translator], you may be able to communicate with someone new.

Patterns and Probability

How often do bees transform into Legendary types? When's the next time we can expect Vicious Bee to attack? Many things in the world seem random at first... But over time a pattern can reveal the order behind almost all seemingly random occurrences. For example, you may have noticed that certain objects on the mountain seem to come to life... And blow bubbles at the fields every once in a while. The bubbles they blow create Sparkles on flowers, and collecting from those flowers... Can give you Sparkle Tokens containing honey, treats, and other special rewards. It may seem like they do it completely at random, but truth is they're somewhat predictable. After one appears, they will never appear again for at least 10 minutes. And the odds of them not appearing at all within a single hour is incredibly small. The same can be said for Vicious Bee's attacks. Measuring the frequency of these events help up predict when they'll occur again in the future. And recording the results of things like [Royal Jelly] transformations and monster drops... Help us create a clear picture of probabilites [sic]. For my next experiment, I'd like you to track statistics on some seemingly random events. Collect 77 Sparkles Tokens... Collect 7,777,777 Pollen from the Clover Field... Defeat 7 Vicious Bees...

Chemical Analysis

Through years of diligent experimentation... We've made countless advancements in honeymaking technology. But the discovery that's most surprising, and least well understood... Is the use of [Gumdrops] to immediately gain honey from the flowers themselves! Scatter [Gumdrops] on a field, and it will become covered in puddles. Collect from those puddles to gain bonus honey. We call the honey gained in this way "Goo", and it has some seemingly other-worldly properties... For my next experiment, I want to demystify goo and better understand how it works. Using that knowledge, I believe I'll be able to unlock even more potential in your swarm! Take these [Gumdrops] and share them with others to complete these tasks. Using them on boosted fields will yeild [sic] much more Goo per [Gumdrop]. Here's what I'll need: Collect 270,000 Goo from White Flowers... Collect 270,000 Goo from Red Flowers...

Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Marking Mechanics Bee and many other creatures use chemical called pheromones... To communicate with eachother [sic] chemically, through scent. They release a certain pheromone to alert other bees about threats... Another to keep track of where they've been, another to tell others where to go... And many more for all sorts of situations! Pheromones are simulated in this game through the "Mark" bee abilities. These produce signs on random areas of the field that grant boosts when you stand in their proximity. It's the visual representation of a bee using pheromones to tell you where to go. If the circles surrounding two Marks overlap, you gain the boosts of both by standing near either. Having many Marks active and overlapping the field increase their effectiveness. And makes it much easier to activate many of them at a time. As of right now, Stubborn Bee and Carpenter Bee produce Marks. Let's take a closer look at pheromone and Mark abilities. By better understanding how bees communicate.

Meditating On Phenomenon Many things appear different, but when you take a closer look, they're actually the same. Or at least, very closely related. Some examples of this are obvious, like ice and water. And others are harder to understand, like space and time. It may seem crazy to suggest that space and time are the same thing... But there's evidence supporting this, although it's difficult to grasp. The theory unifying space and time can predict some things more accuratly [sic]... Than theories that suggest they're separate. For that practical reason, we disregard our intuition and seemingly strange things to be true. But there's something to be said about our intuitions and impressions. Things that, by all scientific accounts, are the same... Can produce distinctly different feelings in our minds when we experience them. We can understand feelings, to a certain degree, using neuroscience... But from a more holistic standpoint, they seem to escape scientific explanation. This starts to seem like a philosophical problem, rather than scientific. But, as a bear of science, that won't stop me from trying to understand them methodically! Preform these seemingly similar tasks, and reflect on both the distinct feelings you experience... And the ways in which they are essentially the same.

Fascinating! So there are at least 29 types of bees! Ah, and some frustrating notes on the elusive measurability [sic] of human experience. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the efficiency multiplier to a total of 725%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

Beesperanto I'm making further progress in my quest to answer the problem of language once and for all! And the implications of my findings will make shockwaves [sic] in all fields imaginable. Without the barrier of language... We'll be able to directly communicate our exact demands to the bees... And the bees may even have secrets of their own that could help us in return! The economy of the mountain will likely grow astronomically... Once we're able to better communicate honey export deals with bears far and wide. Perhaps one day there may even be peace between the bear, monsters and bugs... If we're able to talk with eachother [sic] and understand eachothers [sic] motivations! This is yet another example of the benefits of science and technology. Every seemingly impossible struggle can be overcome with the use of our minds. Help me complete this experiment, and I'll be able to finish my second [Translator]. Our findings may shape the course of history: Obtain a Carpenter Bee... Collect 200 Sunflower Seed Tokens... Collect 400 Pineapple Tokens... Collect 40,000,000 White Pollen... Collect 800,000 Goo from the Strawberry Field... Collect 800,000 Goo from the Bamboo Field...

The importance of language can't be overstated. There's some evidence to suggest that thought itself... Is completely reliant on language. That means that we may all experience the world in different ways... Depending on the structure and emphasis of the language we use. There's arguably some some good that comes from that difference. It allows us to have different perspectives... Which helps use reveal and teach eachother [sic] new things. But it arguably leads to more problems. Especially regarding maintaining peace and communicate efficiently. That's why I'm passionate about my [Translator] project! Here's what I need from you to progress: Obtain a Carpenter Bee... Collect 200 Sunflower Seed Tokens... Collect 400 Pineapple Tokens... Collect 40,000,000 White Pollen... Collect 800,000 Goo from the Strawberry Field... Collect 800,000 Goo from the Bamboo Field...

But keep in mind, once you give it to someone, the decision is permanent. Next week, I'll have 5 more quests that may allow me to create another.

Hive Minded Bias Did you know that not all bees live in hives? In fact, most species of bees live solitary lives! Instead of communal hives, some bees live alone in hollow sticks. Otherse [sic] live in holes burrowed into trees, and others even live in the ground! Often, we become so used to seeing the same type of specimens... And we forget just how varied life on this planet is! By fixating on just what's directly in front of us... We tend to make false assumptions about the whole picture. That's why it's important to expose yourself to new ideas, sights and places. It's our only defense against preconceptions that are biased and misguided. For our next experiment, let's get out of our element. Collect 44,444,444 Pollen from the Cactus Field... Collect 44,444,444 Pollen from the Spider Field... Collect 444,444 from the Ant Field... Feed 44 Moon Charms to your Bees... Use 4 Stingers... Use 1 Enzymess [sic]... Use 1 Oils [sic]... Collect 44 Inspire Tokens... Defeat 44 Fire Ants... Craft 44 Ingredients with the Blender...

Mushroom Measurement Monotony Science isn't always exciting. For every revolutionary finding, there are countless experiments that revealed nothing remarkable at all. Much of the labor of science is just collecting samples, tracking numbers... That describes the mundane but essential bulk of our work. It's not all about fancy technology and explosive chemical reactions! And for this next experiment, all I need is a lot of data on mushrooms and their effect on the pollen of nearby flowers. Collect 150,000,000 Pollen from the Mushroom Field... And, most importantly... Discover 32 types of bees! Report back when your research is complete.

Fascinating! So there are at least 32 types of bees! Ah, and some unsurprising measurements on the negligible effect of mushrooms on the pollen of nearby [text cut off?]. By studying these, I believe I can unlock some potential in your swarm! Hmm... ...(thinking)... AH HA! There we go! From here on out, your bees will be able to convert 25% more pollen to honey at a time. That brings the conversion efficiency bonus to 700%! Report back to me when you're ready to do more research.

The Power of Information Information is power. When you're more informed, you're better capable of making accurate predictions. The implications of that fact spread across all aspects of our lives. Complex tools are only made possible by the sum of information regarding the mechanics behind how they work, Collected and passed down through time in books and documents, from teacher to student. Advertisers who have amassed huge quantities of data on the habits of potential consumers, Are much more likely to successfully tune and target their products to the masses, resulting in more sales. More sales results in more money, and we all know money is power! In times of conflict, spies and informants quite literally seek information regarding their enemies, Which can be used to undermine their plans, and change the tides of war. All great movements throughout the history of civilization can be traced back... To the accumulation of information, and it's [sic] employment in making accurate predictions. Let's amass heaps of information to help power your hive into the next epoch of honeymaking efficiency! Collect 330,000,000 White Pollen... Collect 11,000,000 Goo... Defeat 110 Army Ants... Collect 5,500 Bomb Tokens... Collect 3,300 Token Link Tokens... Collect 880 Mark Tokens... Collect 440 Tokens from Sparkles... Use the Strawberry Dispenser 3 Times...

Many large companies deal with information as their primary product. Even seemingly insignificant collections of data regarding the mundane behaviors and habits of people like [text cut off?] Can be worth millions of dollars! Why? Because there's nearly an infinite number of ways to obtain useful information from that data, when collected in large enough quantities! Trends in tastes, attitudes, and behaviors... Can be tracked and spotted early using statistics to analyze that pool of data. For anyone who seeks to influence other people, being able to predict and understand them is key. And information is what makes accurate predictions possible! Let's collect collect [sic] some now: Collect 330,000,000 White Pollen... Collect 11,000,000 Goo... Defeat 110 Army Ants...

Testing Teamwork Each member of your bee swarm wouldn't be able to accomplish much on its own... But when combined with the rest of your bees, they're capabable of making millions of honey a day! People aren't so different from bees in that way. Alone, we'd be constantly working just to keep alive. Together, we're able to shape the entire world! Just think of all we've been able to accomplish so far... By pairing my intelligence with the diligent work ethic of you and your bees. Well, this next experiment will require more coordination and teamwork than any we've attempted yet! You'll need to share [Magic Beans] and [Gumdrops] with your fellow beekeepers, And to seek out those with Festive Bees for Festive Gifts. By analyzing the mechanics behind teamwork and collective work efforts, I believe I'll be able to unlock even more potential in your swarm: Collect 50,000,000 Goo from the Clover Field... Collect 500 Sprout Tokens... Collect 500 Tokens from Stick Nymphs... Collect 50 Tokens from Stick Bug Defense Totems... Collect 500 Tokens from Festive Gifts... And, most importantly...

Epistemological Endeavor What does it mean for something to have meaning? Does the word "bee" only have meaning insofar as it evokes the image of an actual bee in the mind Of the one who reads or hears it? Are the emotions that words evoke also part of the meaning? When I hear "bee", I feel happy, since they make me honey. But others may associate the word "bee" with panic - the fear of being stung! And what happens when, over time, a word begins to refer to something other than what was originally intended? The bees you see in this game only loosely reflect the bees that exist in the real world, But there may be children around the world who, due to their familiarity with Bee Swarm Simulator, May first picture Basic Bee in their mind before an actual, living bee! These ambiguities surrounding language make it difficult to comprehend through traditional scienctific [sic] means. It seems that those ambiguities may arise... ...from language underlying and supporting the structure of knowledge itself. Is it even possible to comprehend, let alone measure, something that seems to lie "beneath" comprehension? It is for me! That's why I've been able to make so much progress on my third [Translator]! All I need now is for you to complete the following tasks: Collect 1,010,101,010 Pollen from the Sunflower Field... Collect 1,010,101,010 Pollen from the Pineapple Patch...

Exclusive Beesmas Dialogue Enjoying the lights I strung up? You are given a choice to give Science Bear a present, or continue talking like normal. You give him a present. Ah yes, a Beesmas Gift! I'll have you know I'm hard to impress. Let's see... Oh! A textbook documenting rare, peculiar, and endangered languages! Oh look, unspoken language too: smoke signals, sign language, Silbo Gomero... This may offer some valuable insights that'll help forward my Translator project! Thank you very much. And here's something for you too, of course!
Conclusion (before last 5 translator quests were added) I'm performing some research that will bring me closer to building a third [Translator]. Check back with me next weekend and I'll have more experiments for us to do.
Conclusion That's all the experiments I can perform for now. Check back with me after the game updates.

  • He is the only bear to have ''discovering bee types'' as a requirement.
  • Science Bear is the 2nd to last quest bear on the map, the last being Polar Bear.
  • Just like Panda Bear, Mother Bear, Black Bear, and Bee Bear, he is self-aware that he is in the game: during the Costs of Computation quest, he remarks that actual beehives contain thousands of bees, but simulating that would crash the servers; and if you talk to him after finishing all of his quests, he tells you to wait for more updates.
  • Science Bear is based on the spectacled bear.
  • He's one of the two bears to give a unique ability after every quest, the other being Polar Bear.
  • Science Bear is Onett's least favorite bear to write dialogue for which is why there are currently only 31 quests.
  • Science Bear is the first bear to give quests to collect pollen from the Mountain Top Field.
  • He is also the first bear to give quests that require you to discover a specific bee, instead of simply the general type requirement.
  • Science Bear is the only bear to give translators.
  • Science Bear only had 16 quests until that was bumped up to 26 in the 11/25 subsequently it rose to 31 in the 12/19 update
  • One of his quests involves collecting billions of pollen from fields, the second to do so.
  • Science Bear and Bee Bear are the only bears to require pollen from the Mountain Top Field.
  • In one of his quests, Science Bear gives you a code ''GumdropsForScience'' which gives you 15 gumdrops.
  • He is the third Quest Giver that requires you to defeat Tunnel Bear, the first being Panda Bear, second being Onett. He is also the second Quest Bear that requires defeating Tunnel Bear.
  • Many of the Honey rewards for Science Bear's quests are based around important mathematical constants, such as pi (quests 1 & 31), e (quest 13), powers of 2 (quest 26), and the square root of 2 (quests 7 & 25).
  • He is the first bear that requires you to collect pollen from the Ant field.
