The Science Bus
Until November 2017 the Science Bus will travel through Europe bringing workshops and tools to investigate the world around you. How can you charge your phone when there is no socket around? Do you know what lives in your yogurt? And can you make your own sunscreen? We want to find out, with you! The Science Bus is in search of folk remedies. An everyday trick or ‘life hack’ that everyone can use to make or fix just about anything. By combining old knowledge with new technologies we want to make these clever folk remedies accessible to everyone.

A special thanks to Amsterdam Smart City for co-organizing this event.

Doing It Together Science
The Science Bus is part of the European project, “Doing It Together Science.” Within this project, research institutions work together with science galleries, museums and art institutions to engage as many people as possible with citizen science. By hosting innovative workshops, exhibitions and activities all around Europe the eleven partners show that citizen science is an accessible and fun way to explore the world around you.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 709443.
