TROY - Bringing science to the students. That's why the "BioBus" recently arrived in Troy.

The big, shiny bus covered with solar panels is essentially a science lab on wheels. Once inside, students get to experiment with $100,000 worth of high-end scientific equipment.

The front of the bus features three stations with microscopes connected to screens, allowing students to share discoveries with one another. They also interact with scientists on board who explain the everyday applications of biology and ecology.

The "BioBus" visits the Capital Region on a regular basis from its home in New York City.
