First, announcements for the inaugural Open Bus were posted, and a mailing list was established to spread the word. Sign-up to stay in the know.
Second, the new website gets more and more hits everyday - 100 hits on Wednesday. Martin Halla has volunteered to expand and develop the site.
Third, Andy Gerson of Olympus delivered a new microscope and camera!
Fourth, I found out that I can get fresh karp fish scales every Tuesday and Wednesday.
Fifth, I had my first student on the bus today, and together we recorded the first cells to be imaged on the bus!
Sixth through I'm-going-to-stop-counting now: Ublip donated a GPS tracker, Fetch Softworks and Marware donated software, and the BioBus Facebook group is going strong!
Please spread the word about the open bus - especially to K-12 students and teachers! I had a meeting with my friend Laura today and we think we can get enough footage for a short, 5 minute video piece about the bus to use on the website and other promotional material.
Want to know "why karp-fish?" and "whats with their scales?" OHHHHH you're gonna have to work for that one.
