Biology teacher new to Slime Mould Co. with some questions.

Hi everyone! I am new here and am wondering if there are any other teachers who use slime mold in their classes. I teach AP biology at a high school in Phoenix, AZ, and am interested in incorporating slime molds into my classes in reference to cell communication.

I am also curious how and where you order slime mold.

Thanks!

I ended up getting it from Carolina, it was pretty affordable, and I was able to get it to grow onto different pitri dishes so that I had enough for individual groups to experiment with. It worked out really well and the kids were fascinated! Have fun! :)

Great! Thank you so much. By the way, your TED Talk was fantastic! I showed my classes and they loved it.
