Activities are geared towards grades 1-5 and designed for up to 25 students to participate in individual or group sessions. STEAM Carts are placed in schools for a six month residency, and selected schools can use the cart to supplement active classroom lessons, enable after school enrichment opportunities, or promote family engagement. Examples of STEAM Cart activities include:

  • Balloon Cars
  • Hovercraft
