STEM Day at the Iowa State Fair

The 2020 STEM Day at the Fair will be held on Sunday, August 23, 2020.

For this family-friendly event, we fill the State Fair’s Grand Concourse with opportunities to learn about how STEM touches our lives daily and to experience hands-on activities from more than 20 organizations across the state.

The Iowa STEM booth on the East end of the STEM exhibits will hand out FREE drawstring backpacks and collect your "STEM Day at the Fair Checklist" to win cool prizes. Once you've got hands-on with STEM, take a seat and enjoy a STEM stage performance. 

The festivities last from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Connect with us at the State Fair by following us on Twitter or Instagram at @IowaSTEM or find us on Facebook—Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council.
