Kids and teachers can get access to and see 240,000 documented hours of coverage. The idea is to engage teachers, students and community members with an interactive experience on multiple platforms.

On board the bus are large screen tablets, a production studio and even a selfie station.

"We're a source for you. So if you like to do your own research, if you like to look up your elected officials and see how they vote on issues or even find out who they are – you can come to C-SPAN. We have all of that information for you – and you can make your own informed decision," explained Jenae Green with C-SPAN.

The bus has traveled across the country since 1993.
