Live, interactive laboratory sessions with BioBus scientists!
Join BioBus for a journey into the microscopic world!
Using tools like research-grade microscopes, BioBus scientists lead a group of up to 30 students through a 45-minute biology exploration. Students work with scientists to investigate the world through a different lens, make observations, develop hypotheses, and experience the joy of scientific discovery first-hand!
Are you a K-12 educator or administrator interested in scheduling a lab session for your students?
We offer Discover at Home sessions almost every day that you can book for groups of up to 30 students each.

Are you a K-12 student or parent interested in signing up for a lab session?
A limited number of our Discover at Home sessions are open to direct enrollment by individual students.
These Community Classes are free to all. However, if you are able, we ask for your support so that we can continue bringing science opportunities to students who need them most.

“My students needed an opportunity to experience labs again and the BioBus got that “delivered” via remote instruction. They helped show my kids that scientists are fun, interesting humans beyond the content. The content itself was informative and clarified a lot of student misconceptions about the Hudson River.”
-- M. R., middle school science teacher, Lower East Side
“Your staff is absolutely outstanding! They engaged all the students and they make learning this way just the most fun.”

“I know how excited [my students] were. They didn't even have time to send silly messages in the Meet chat, so that says a lot!”
