The Rutgers Science Explorer is a 40-foot, state-of-the-art, custom-designed mobile laboratory and science demonstration center that will bring exciting and innovative hands-on activities to your school. The Rutgers Science Explorer extends Rutgers' science community beyond the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus to bring “Rutgers Science Day” to schools and communities around the state of New Jersey. Initially targeting New Jersey's middle and junior high schools, the bus features interactive exhibits and laboratory exercises in the life sciences, earth science, and the physical sciences. Rutgers graduate and undergraduate students who have been awarded special teaching fellowships funded by the National Science Foundation staff the bus and conduct the presentations. The Rutgers Science Explorer accommodates two Rutgers instructors, 20 students, their teacher, and up to two visitors per teaching session.
