Biobus - Living Environment opportunity

Our Living Environment students visited the Bio Bus mobile Science lab on October 29th. Students were actively engaged in a 45 min lab on Cells taught by two Scientists from Columbia University’s Science Research team. During the lab students uncovered the organization in all living organisms and moved from organism to organs to cells to organelles. They also observed Daphnia, a transparent crustacean just a few millimeters long; under the microscope. They were able to see the organs and then, with another turn of the microscope knob, the cells within those organs. Students also can compared Daphnia's cells to their own, which they swabbed to see through the high-power microscopes on the Bio Bus.
