Introducing the BioBus

Dear Editor:No school in the Roaring Fork Valley has the budget to create a laboratory for teaching the “hottest” subject in our culture today … Alternative Energy. Now all the schools in the Valley can have access to that lab. … Roll in the BioBus!Steve Kaufman, founder of Access Roaring Fork, director of Basalt’s public access TV Channel 17, educator and devoted community volunteer has created the BioBus. It is not complete however, and the BioBus needs your help.This is a project for the community. There is no financial profit built into this project, so: Imagine all the Roaring Fork schools in a small way financially contributing to this high tech mobile laboratory classroom. Imagine energy companies participating. Imagine businesses participating. Imagine interested “grassroots” citizens participating.My contribution was to use my architectural skills in designing and drawing the conversion of the old school bus to become the BioBus Classroom on Wheels.Steve needs your help, your financial help to complete this project so it can be ready for school use in September of 2007. Please call him at 963-5646 or e-mail with your generous Roaring Fork Valley spirited offers and support.Jay LeavittChannel 17 volunteerCarbondale
