STEAM, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics


Science knowledge, technology skills, engineering design, art creativity and mathematical reasoning are the cornerstone of modern scientific approaches, and we are here to help you take STEAM from the classroom to the community and beyond.

We’re helping to build Iowa’s future scientists, engineers, and artists to further grow opportunities for both our community and our state.

From STEAM kits that go out into our communities to online, interactive, Iowa place-based virtual field trips, we offer resources and engagement opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels.

For Teachers

We will come to your school, at no cost, to share all of the complimentary STEAM resources that we and our PBS station partners have available for use in your classrooms. Contact us to schedule a presentation.

Iowa Science Phenomena

Iowa Science Phenomena creates, curates, collects and shares a growing collection of user-generated, media-based, standards aligned, science phenomena resources for use in Iowa classrooms.

For Students

STEAM Trailer, Bundles and STEAM Events

At no cost to you, Iowa PBS Education has a trailer full of interactive, hands-on STEAM-based activities sparking curiosity in children. The STEAM trailer travels throughout the state, often visiting libraries or schools.

If you are interested in the trailer, but it's already reserved, we have packaged several STEAM activities into bundles that can be reserved. These bundles are provided to you for free and can be a great substitute for a trailer visit.

Our education staff is available for STEAM events, where we bring the activities similar to the trailer.

We take reservations year-round for the trailer, the bundles and STEAM events. We will accommodate you as staff time allows.

Contact us to reserve these resources.
