NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - For the fifth year in a row students at New Hanover High School were given a hands on biology lesson.

The Destiny Traveling Science Bus made a pit stop at the school Wednesday so students could learn more about obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

The laboratory on wheels travels statewide to give students an opportunity to use science equipment they would not be exposed to otherwise .

"The benefit is the students get to experience a whole different level of biology," said Bethany Noller of New Hanover High School.  "Bio technology is a very important field definitely a growing field and they get to have an experience they normally wouldn't."

A teacher must attend learning workshops with the program in order for the bus to make a stop at a given school.
