STEAM Express

STEAM Express mobile classroom

The Klein ISD Education Foundation worked with community and business partners to provide the first ever Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) Express to the students and staff of the Klein ISD.

History

The concept for the STEAM Express was proposed in the summer of 2012 by three members of Dr. Cain’s executive team.

Fundraising began with the 2013 Diamonds & Denim Jubilee celebrating Klein ISD’s 75th anniversary where generous donations from community members and business partners enabled the foundation to order the custom built STEAM Express trailer in early 2014.

In-kind donations of state-of-the-art technology units and materials insure a unique learning experience for all K-12 students. The addition of a wheelchair lift insures that access is available to all Klein ISD students.

PBK Architects donated their time to design the trailer interior while working with Featherlite Trailer engineers on everything from the wiring infrastructure to safety requirements to the interior placement of learning stations.

STEAM Express Sponsors

The STEAM Express is being used to bring age-appropriate, interactive hands-on activities and experiments to schools in the Klein ISD. Students learn like a scientist in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
