Taking science on the road: The Ithaca physics bus

Between the yellow school buses of the Ithaca City School District and the bright blue buses of TCAT, there are countless colorful buses in Ithaca — but only one is purple.

On the road since 2014, the Ithaca Physics Bus is a mobile classroom that educates people of all ages in the Ithaca community about physical phenomena through quirky and interactive exhibits.

In February 2024, the bus traveled to Colorado for an open house at the Little Shop of Physics, a physics learning and outreach center at Colorado State University, joining several other organizations focused on science education and communication.
