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. Read more about the Science Bus here.
