The Honeybee Project will produce the following children’s educational materials for kindergarten through sixth grade, with an emphasis on third to fifth grades.  Our goals are to educate, raise awareness and demystify the quiet but mighty honeybee for children while helping them form a connection to the natural world.  Woven into this intention are mythologies and legends of Elders from a variety of multi-cultural traditions. 

All educational materials will be available nationally to schools, libraries, natural history and children’s museums, 4H clubs, agricultural extension offices, bee clubs and associations, zoos, PBS and other educational television stations, and any children’s educational entity that can benefit from them.

A portion of the proceeds from The Honeybee Project will also go to organizations that support the sustainability of the honeybee.

"The way bees work together is a lesson for us all.
They produce food, care for the young, recycle waste and create an effective, efficient community.  They pollinate fruits, flowers and vegetables in the process - a benefit for us all."

A highly interactive and dynamic traveling honeybee museum exhibit is being conceived by The Honeybee Project and The North Carolina Arboretum. This exhibit will tour around the world for eight to ten years once fully funded, designed, and constructed. It will be developed by state-of-the-art museum design professionals together with a team of teachers, scientists, beekeepers, engineers, multi-media professionals, artists, and others. Its first showing will be at The NC Arboretum.

This 3,500 square foot museum exhibit will be designed to fulfill an underserved population of small and medium sized museums.  Most science museum exhibits are large 5000+ square foot displays that not only require a large venue, but also command a significant rental fee, which eliminates the majority of education and museum halls.  Julie Vidotto, Curator of Education at The NC Arboretum, reports that mid-sized museums have been asking for good science and educational museum exhibits for years. 
The Honeybee Project fulfills that niche.

We are currently seeking one, two or three underwriters for this exhibit, which offers extensive and ongoing international exposure for the length of this eight to ten year museum tour. 

For further information about being an underwriter, please contact The Honeybee Project at (828) 712-0880 or
