2017 - A year of awesome. The BSD FutureBus created over 50 customized experiences that engaged and inspired over 15,000 students, teachers, and community members around the Northwest. Sometimes you might find the bus rocking circuit-building activities and programmable robots for a science night at a middle school. Other times you might find the bus set up for a week at an elementary school to run hands-on workshops for students. Later you might find teachers sitting on the bus drinking coffee and sharing innovative ideas. Every visit has the same goal: awesomeness.

We would like to thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm for this project. We hope to see you in the near future!
Spring 2017 - The bus inspired students and teachers with Robots, Augmented Reality, and laughter at Hazeldale Elementary. A truly remarkable visit that led to an inspirational story: https://futurebus.org/2017/11/13/this-is-your-bus/
Summer 2017 - 7th graders at Cedar Park used hand tools, math, and perseverance to create electric cigar box guitars. For many students, this was the first time they had ever really made anything with their hands.
Fall 2017 - Empathize, design, prototype, test, iterate. The FutureBus supported over 300 students and 10 teachers at Meadow Park as they engaged in deep thinking and collaboration to use design thinking to solve real world problems.
2018 - We are looking ahead to another year of awesome! We would like to again thank our sponsors who have made all of this possible. We will continue to pack the bus full of ideas and robots and drive out to schools so we can inspire our teachers and students. We hope to see you at one of our events!
