The Bio-Bus project consists of scientists and educators at Georgia
State University who are committed to building a learning community
that serves all Georgians. In support of this goal, in 1999 the
University provided us with funds to build the first Bio-Bus, a
30-foot self contained mobile laboratory. We now have a "fleet"
of two buses and a van. So far, we have visited over 300 community
groups and local schools (public and private) in 20 counties in
Dr. Barbara Baumstark, Director of the Bio-Bus
Program, and students with the first Bio-Bus in 1999
Starting in March, 2001, the Bio-Bus Program has also been supported
by the National Science
Foundation, as part of its Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12
Education (GK-12) program.
