Discover! at Home

BioBus has developed Discover! at Home programs as a way to bring our interactive, immersive laboratory spaces to young scientists at home. In these live, interactive online lab classes, students work with scientists to explore the world using research-grade microscopes, are encouraged to ask questions, and get to experience the joy of scientific discovery first-hand.

Like all current BioBus at Home programs, Discover! at Home classes are free of charge through May and June 2020 as we work to reach the students most impacted by the pandemic. If you are able to help us reach even more students most in need of science opportunities, we invite you to visit

Discover! at Home School Sessions

We are currently running Discover! at Home classes almost everyday with groups of students from K-12 schools in NYC and beyond. If you are an educator interested in scheduling a class for students at your school or organization, please fill out the form at this link. We have a high demand for these programs, but we will do our best to share the joy of scientific discovery with your students.

Discover! at Home Community Classes

We are thrilled to open some of our Discover! at Home sessions to individual enrollment so that young scientists at home can join us directly! These community classes will be held on the password-protected BioBus Zoom portal with up to 30 students in each session. Half of the spots will be reserved for families of essential workers.

We currently have the following sessions open for individual signup. Depending on interest, we will add more elementary, middle, or high school community classes in the upcoming weeks.

  • Monday, June 1st, 3:00 – 3:45 PM (Grades 3-5)
  • Thursday, June 4th, 2:00 – 2:45 PM (Grades K-2)
  • Monday, June 8th, 3:00 – 3:45 PM (Grades 6-9)
  • Thursday, June 11th, 3:00 – 3:45 PM (Grades 3-5)

Please fill out the form below to sign up for the upcoming Discover! at Home community classes or to stay in the loop about future ones.
