Children and Families: BioBus Family Day
BioBus brings a new lens to Storm King – the microscope lens. Climb on board the solar-powered, state-of-the-art mobile microscope lab to visualize the invisible structures that build our local ecosystems.
The BioBus research grade mobile science lab (a refurbished partially solar- and biofuel-powered 1974 transit bus with over $100,000 of microscopes) and the BioBase research grade community science lab give 30,000 students annually the chance to feel the excitement of making a scientific discovery. Through our STEM programs taught by PhD and Masters-level scientists, we help to generate interest among and empower New York City youth to create the next generation of scientists.
Family programming is supported by the Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky Fund for Family Programs, Goldie Anna Charitable Trust, and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.
