I am so impressed with your website and very excited to have found it. I hope that you don't mind my asking you a few questions.
I am a former Peace Corps Volunteer who recently returned from Paraguay South America where I was working as a beekeeper with Africanized Bees. I am now going into the school systems to give science-based bee presentations to K-5 (in Los Angeles). I'd like to inspire children with how fascinating bees are as well as educate them to what fundamental components of our existence these little creatures are.
I was researching on the internet and it seems as though you might be a good person to ask to point me in the right direction for educational outreach materials. I'd like to make my presentations as interactive as possible using oversized photos, bees in resin, honeycomb samples but I don't know where to obtain those materials.
If you have the time and would like to let me know, I have my first presentation scheduled for Sept 7 in my home town in New Hampshire. I live in Los Angeles now but I grew up on an apple orchard about 40 minutes outside of Boston. I'm very excited and nervous. I'd like the presentations to be first class and I know I will need a little help from those with more experience than I!
Thanks for your consideration,
