The Science Bus needs a crew! Could you be the captain?

From: Pauline
Sent on: Monday, April 3, 2017 3:40 PM

We're looking for enthusiastic, hands-on workshop leaders with excellent social skills and a love for science to drive our Science Bus across Europe. Do you have a passion for DIY-science and can you drive our Science Bus in the summer of 2017? Then we have a dream job for you!

Science Bus captain wanted!
As the captain of our vessel, you'll drive the Science Bus to various locations across Europe: from the Netherlands to Italy, from Kosovo to France. On location, you lead workshops in collaboration with local partners. We send you on your way with plenty of materials and “instructables” to make DIY measuring instruments with the locals. During the trip, you collect and examine folk remedies from citizens across Europe and share the results online.

What are we looking for?
A Science Bus captain:

  • is an excellent driver who has no problem with driving long distances on European roads. Preferably our crew has a minimum age of 23 years old and has its driver license for at least 3 years.
  • has experience with teaching or leading workshops.
  • has experience working with electronics and/or basic skill in chemistry and biology.
  • can work with machines like laser cutters, vinyl cutters, and 3D printers (cura).
  • is fluent in English. We're also looking for French-speaking Science Bus captains for part of the tour.
  • is a real vlogger or video editor, or has the willingness to learn this.
  • is very social and outgoing. You see the challenge and fun in giving workshops in an international setting.
  • is flexible! This is not a 9-5 job.
  • is very hands-on and always solution orientated.
