Founded in 2008, BioBus works towards a future in which all people have experienced the power and beauty of making a scientific discovery. BioBus cultivates this vision by creating immersive laboratory environments in which scientists join students and the general public for hands-on scientific exploration. This new kind of laboratory space is accessible and unintimidating, facilitating scientific engagement even amongst populations historically underrepresented in science professions. Within this space, scientists share their expertise and knowledge through direct, hands-on experiences, allowing participants to reshape their view of science through participation in the discovery process.
