Have you seen the bus parked behind the building from time to time? That's the Discovery Mobile, which recently made the front page of the Times Free Press! If you haven’t seen it rolling around town already, the Discovery Mobile is a retrofitted school bus with special seating and equipment that creates a mobile science, engineering and innovation lab on wheels. The bus provides students in Hamilton and surrounding counties with fun, engaging hands-on lessons in the arts and sciences with a particular emphasis on STEM concepts. 

With a lack of science labs and equipment at many elementary schools and tighter budgets limiting field trips, teachers need more resources and support to help them not only teach science, but make it fun for their students. The Discovery Mobile gives them all those things and more.

While the Mobile is up and running, we are still seeking donations to complete the outfitting of equipment and technologies for the bus. You can help support the project by visiting our Discovery Mobile page on
