First Act Fund Grant: $10,000
BEEducated submitted a proposal entitled: "A Novel Machine Learning Approach Towards Detecting Colony Collapse Disorder." The generous $10,000 grant from the First Act Fund and Schmidt Futures will enable our team, BEEducated, to purchase and equip their communities with “BEE kits” consisting of gardening materials, information packets, and the necessary technology infrastructure. Along with receiving guidance from First Act Fund, BEEducated’s board also consists of professors at research institutions on the advisory team, various school and community garden leaders on the resources and media team, and student researchers on the technology team. Together, we are looking to mobilize communities nationwide in the fight against Colony Collapse Disorder.
