BioBus – Philadelphia

John Hall and Rick McCourt spent a day on the BioBus at public libraries in Philadelphia, teaching K-12 students and visitors about algal morphology and diversity. The BioBus has several high-end microscopes that students can operate themselves to observe algal cultures and field collections. Hall and McCourt are developing lesson plans for use by Dr. Ben Dublin-Thaler, Chief Scientist of the BioBus, for use on his visits to schools and science events in the northeastern USA.
