The Georgia Tech Urban Honey Bee Project is using the Georgia TechStarter platform to raise funds for research. Contributors to our "Honey Bees Get Wired" campaign will help purchase high-tech equipment used to monitor honey bee behavior. In particular, the funds will be used to purchase an RFID system. Tiny RFID tags will be attached to bees, allowing us to detect exactly when each labeled bee leaves and returns to the hive. We can then determine whether foraging patterns differ in rooftop hives and ground-level hives and in urban and rural environments. For more information, go to https://starter.gatech.edu/#55.
