Welcome to iExploreSTEM

A new festival season is upon us!

Check out festivals in the northeast, northwest, southeast, and south central regions.

We will be adding information about additional 2014 festivals and events as it becomes available.

iExlporeSTEM festivals are a series of hands-on, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) festivals in Iowa. They look and feel like a county fair or street festival.

They -

  • are fun and free
  • are for children of all ages and their families
  • challenge children to think - to solve STEM problems
  • provide a way to meet STEM professionals from firefighters to architects to physicians
  • introduce children and their parents to careers in STEM. 

Kids can try their hand at as many or as few activities as strike their fancy. They might design and build a windmill, dissect a virtual cadaver, or explore a career through video games.
