If you combine science with a soda bottle, what do you get? A lot of very cool stuff. The Bottle Biology Web site shows how bottles can be used to explore science and the environment. Visitors can create ecosystems, explore the concept of "niche," model a lakeshore, breed fruit flies and spiders, observe the adventures of slime molds, or pickle cabbage. The many fun projects in this site promote science as a tool everyone can use to explore the world. These explorations also can be integrated with history, art, music and other creative endeavors. The Wisconsin Fast Plants Program produces instructional materials for the Bottle Biology Manual. This site includes sample activities from the manual.
