Find Phenomena at the Fair with Iowa PBS

9 a.m. - 8 p.m.
Varied Industries Building
Iowa State Fairgrounds

Visitors to Iowa PBS’s State Fair exhibit will marvel at a geode the size of a basketball, prairie grass root systems taller than a basketball player and Iowa mussels that help keep our waterways clean. Come visit Iowa PBS in the Varied Industries Building to see these and other “phenomenal” science displays, pick up some great giveaways and have fun for the whole family. 

This year, fans can take a walk through the expansive exhibit space to discover and marvel at the Iowa Science Phenomena project. Iowa PBS Education staff and local Iowa educators will be on-site each morning of the fair to show curious kids the many different ways science can be a phenomenal thing! In addition, all fairgoers will get a sneak peek at what’s coming soon to Iowa PBS and have the opportunity to take selfies with life-size standees. Visitors are also welcome to take home one of our Iowa PBS fold away carry-alls and a magnifying bookmark.
