The Ithaca Physics Bus is about doing science for fun. It is a mobile exhibition of upcycled appliances reimagined by kids that showcase unfamiliar physics phenomena. The mission of the physics bus is to awaken interest and creativity in physics for all ages and walks of life — especially those underserved by science enrichment.
The Physics bus can reach a wide range of people in diverse locations from local neighborhood, urban parks and rural schools, to cross-country destinations.
It allows for the audience to have self-directed, empowering, positive experiences with physics. We believe that these types of positive experiences enrich lives and inspire people.
