What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
I am a high school student at NTI Gymnasiet in Gothenburg Sweden who is interested in studying slime molds for high school thesis. It is a a really cool subject that I learned about not too long ago by watching videos and researching articles online. Upon realising they have many intelligent capabilities I knew I wanted to study them in more detail.
