Water Bus

The Water Bus is now fully booked until June 2019. A reserve list is available 

The Waterbus is a double decker bus, which has been transformed into a mobile education unit. It concentrates on the many aspects of water and is aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils. It can accommodate up to 60 pupils at any one time.

On the Water Bus you will meet H20, our Water Wise Super Hero. He is with us throughout our programme and introduces the Wonderful World of Water. Meet his friends Bob and Flo and their cute little dog Soggy.

Pupils learn by presentation and demonstration about a range of water issues such as the water cycle, water for health, water sources, water and wastewater treatment , water conservation and water in the developing world. The Water Bus uses a number of educational tools such as; displays, games, models, experiments, DVDs and computer facilities.

These resources include:

The Water Cycle

An internally illuminated illustration used to demonstrate the water cycle, explaining why water never runs out.

The Laboratory

H2O has his very own Wild Water Lab where pupils are shown some simple experiments:

  • Water in its various forms, i.e. solid, liquid and gas.
  • The filtering process used to remove small particles from raw water.
  • Microbes used to treat raw sewage on a video monitor.
  • Bag It & Bin It

In-house Cinema

On the upper deck of the bus there is a small cinema used to show videos and presentations. This area is branded with our unique characters Bob and Flo. Watch Bob and Flo have fun adventures as they find out all about water; from the water cycle to water for health. This programme can be tailored to meet the needs of your school.
