Happiness is STEM outreach at the Iowa State Fair

STEM 4-H activities at Iowa State Fair

An Iowa State University project offered kids hands-on experience with the carbon cycle, biorenewables, solar cars and wind energy at the 4-H Exhibits Building during the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council’s “STEM at the Iowa State Fair” event. Youth played educational games on iPad minis, made solar cars and even got their hands dirty with biochar experiments as part of the science, technology, engineering and math activities.
