How to Reserve
Fall 2018 Update: The 2017-2018 Bio-Bus Calendar is already filled with 4-6 gigs per week, Tuesdays through Fridays, September through May. These reservations are posted on our new website calendar. We will pull from the the wait list in the event of a cancellation. Please include as much detail as possible in your email of inquiry, including the name of your school or group, three date choices, module choice, grade level, number of students and email/phone for the contact person.
Summer 2018 Reservations: We began taking reservations from libraries and summer programs after January 15th. If all dates have been taken, we can put your program on a wait list. However, we rarely have cancellations in the summer. So reserve on January 15th.

For reservations, contact the Bio-Bus Program Manager at email@example.com or 404-413-5421.
The Bio-Bus Program is a science outreach program from Georgia State University which is free to schools and community groups. Our instructors are Georgia State graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Your students get the advantage of near-peer instruction and role models of a diverse population of young people interested in science, as well as science content. We will teach one module per year per school, in public, parochial, or private K-12 schools or educational groups within an hour’s drive of GSU. If we receive requests from multiple teachers at the same school, a decision will need to be reached as to who will receive the reservation. Due to the high demand for the Bio-Bus, reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis. As much as we would like to, it is not possible for us to fulfill all requests.
*Please adhere to the schedules below and keep in mind that and we do not accept requests prior to these dates. Your reservation MUST be made on or after the opening date for either calendar.
January 15 -March 15 – We take reservations from libraries, camps and summer programs for our summer calendar.
April 15 – December 15 – We take reservations for the coming school year.
Wait List – Once the calendar is full, you will be placed on a wait list for cancellations. You will need to provide ALL the requested information below about your school and preferences, so a file can be set up for you.
Wait-listed schools which did not get a cancellation date will have the first opportunity to make a reservation for the coming school year. An email will be sent early April, allowing schools to make a reservation before the books open to the general public on April 15th.
*Please note: Our wait list is typically quite long therefore it does not guarantee a visit.
