Photobio- what? A photobioreactor utilizes a light source to cultivate microorganisms. These organisms use photosynthesis to generate biomass which can then be converted into a biofuel. Does a circular or oval shaped tube promote algae growth? Check out this bulletin board for the answer.
Want to have less recycling in your room and help out a great cause? Toss your empty cans into this box outside room 226. The cans get turned in for their salvage value and the funds go to support cancer research. During specific cancer awareness months, all the proceeds will go to a specific charity that supports that cancer type. If interested in this project, sign up to join Cans For The Cure on PioneerLink.
Welcome to 2 West where we find cool critters to learn more about as we handle them! We all watched the Praying Mantis fly about and climb stuff. I told people about how Praying Mantises are rare in the state of Wisconsin, but Platteville’s campus seems to have a healthy population of Praying Mantises. I also explained about how to identify their gender too. It has to do with the number of segments on the Mantis’ abdomen. Many did not know that Mantises could fly either which they very much discovered Saturday night!
