STEM Festivals


The Northeast Regional Hub partners with local community leaders and educators to host four Family STEM Festivals. Exhibitors from throughout Iowa spark student and parent interest with hands-on learning ranging from driving robots and trying virtual welding to testing chemical reactions and flying flight simulators.  Each festival is quickly becoming a community-wide, must attend event!

Organized like a street festival or county fair, visitors stroll from activity to activity at their leisure. This awe-inspiring day will feature compelling, educational and entertaining activities, performances and exhibits to boost children's interest in STEM.
