The Science Mobile

"Science Bob" Pflugfelder has been a fan of science since he was just six years old. Over the years, he has been exploring the scientific world with thousands of students. He also encourages parents and teachers to practice "Random Acts of Science" by providing instructions and videos for interactive science experiments on his web site, as well as public presentations and workshops that help make science come alive.

Bob has been featured on television including recent appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Dr. Oz Show, and Live With Kelly & Michael. His experiments have also been featured in several magazines including People, Popular Science, Disney's Family Fun, and WIRED magazine.

Bob has spent a lot of time over the years teaching students working on movies and TV shows. He found it was a lot of work setting up labs at studios, so he purchased an ambulance and turned it into his own traveling mobile science lab! He would take it right to the movie and TV studios to teach his students. His students have included: David Gallagher, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jonathan Lipnicki, Hillary Duff, Frankie Muniz, Haley Joel Osment, Tahj Mowrey, Dylan & Cole Sprouse, and many others.

Bob continues to teach science outside of Boston while he develops experiments and videos to share with his website visitors.

Of course, Bob also loves answering the questions that you send to him here at So next time you see a big blue science ambulance driving around your neighborhood, don't worry, it's just Science Bob on his way to another adventure.
