Bill Snell is interested in experiments that can be done with Chlamydomonas
in a high school laboratory (low budget, minimal equipment, no
health/safety hazards).  I've offered to compile as many ideas as people
can come up with, and put them on the gopher server.  Any suggestions?  I
enclose part of Bill's letter to me:

>I have a high school biology teacher/football coach working in my lab this 
>summer.  We've talked about possible ways to incorporate Chlamy into his 
>classroom.  Do you have any suggestions 
>about exercises for high school students.  Also, do you know of a way to stain 
>cells so that their flagella can be seen in a bright field microscope.  Our teacher tells me that he thinks most high schools will not have a phase 
>contrast microscope.  We might be able to see them with iodine, but because 
>iodine can sublimate, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to have it sitting 
>around a high school lab.  Any suggestions or ideas from you will be welcomed.
