Jennifer Leavey is the director of the Urban Honey Bee Project, an interdisciplinary education, research, and service program of the College of Sciences. The project works closely with partners at community gardens and urban farms to investigate the role of animal pollination on productivity of urban gardens and the effects of urban environments on bees. The program also provides pollination services to those gardens and provides beekeeper education.
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. As part of the Bee-SNAP team, students will design devices and computational approaches to study bees in urban habitats.
This course was created to give students the tools and skills necessary to participate in research as an integral component in their undergraduate experience.
SHaRP Living Learning Community students only – Students in this course will engage with faculty and professional researchers at Georgia Tech in order to explore the ethical effects of medical research.
