Enlightenment Wines

Honey’s  is the tasting room and cocktail bar for New York City’s first meadery: Enlightenment Wines. Enlightenment Wines makes mead- or honey wine from locally sourced and foraged ingredients. These are dry wines are made without grapes-instead we ferment a combination of artesian well water, honey, herbs and fruit in a method of manufacturing that goes back tens of thousands of years. Enlightenment Wines started in the Hudson Valley on a family farmstead in 2009 but recently moved to Brooklyn where it built a second winery and tasting room Honey’s. At Honey’s you can try our mead in the context of other curated beverages from around the world, watch us do production and take home a bottle to go.

Tim O’Neal, BoroughBees

Tim explains why he started BoroughBees.com: “I’ve been keeping bees for over 20 years and I’m still learning. I started BoroughBees.com in 2010 as a way to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated and the learning experiences I’ve had (and continue to have) along the way. I want to help make beekeeping fun and accessible for anyone willing to try it, so I focus on writing accessible and (hopefully) enjoyable posts covering all aspects of beekeeping. In partnership with the Added Value Farm in Red Hook, Brooklyn, I host hive inspections and seminars. In addition to beekeeping, I also teach biology at NYC high schools and universities.”

About the Position

The Art of Science 2014 showcases images of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. The exhibition spurs debate among artists about the nature of art, opens scientists to new ways of “seeing” their own research, and serves as a window through which the general public can appreciate both art and science. These images were chosen from more than 250 submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff and alumni representing more than 25 different departments at Princeton University. They span the fields of electrical engineering, ecology, evolution, chemistry and biology with images of termites, cockroaches, fruit flies and geological structures.

Free with NYSCI admission.

Located in Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the country, NYSCI welcomes 500,000 visitors each year and serves thousands more through outreach in schools, teacher professional development and participation in a variety of public events and research initiatives.

NYSCI is a leader in the science museum field, recognized for its highly regarded exhibitions, programs, and products, all of which are informed by strategies of engagement called Design-Make-Play. The defining characteristics of Design-Make-Play — open-ended exploration, imaginative learning, personal relevance, deep engagement, and delight — are the ingredients that inspire passionate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learners. NYSCI engages diverse communities of learners, particularly young people, in STEM, by fostering the excitement of self-directed exploration and by tapping into the joy of learning intrinsic in young people’s play. Our transformative model for STEM exploration invites broad participation and makes engagement and learning irresistible.

NYSCI has approximately 120 full-time and over 180 part-time staff members.
