The BioBus is the field trip that comes to you! We pull right up to your school on the day of your visit.
Inside the BioBus, students will find a full microscope lab with $100K worth of scientific equipment. The front of the bus features 3 stations with microscopes connected to screens, allowing students to share discoveries with their peers. There's even a pellet-burning stove to keep things toasty over winter months.
The back part of the bus facilitates group discussions of scientific topics....
...and features a scanning electron microscope!
Our lab is powered by a solar panel array on the bus' roof. This is a great way to teach students about renewable energy and sustainability!
Up to 30 students can board the BioBus at a time.
Students are guided by at least 2 BioBus scientists during their visits.
Students also work together to make scientific discoveries while they are on the BioBus.
Group discussions and reflections allow students to present their findings.
