In this study, the effect of the developed bee model on learning success of endocrine system is investigated in comparison with traditional teaching method in science and technology program's second year students of Samsun Educational Faculty. An endocrine system success test (ESST) is applied pre and post-test to both groups. The comparison of success between two groups is done by t-test and it revealed that the experimental group instructed using bee model is more successful (t=8,382, p < 0,05), and also provided with better and permanent understanding of the subject, than control group. Furthermore, students state satisfaction in application of modelling. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
