STEAM Express Mobile Classroom
The STEAM Express is a custom-built mobile classroom complete with unique activities and experiments for all ages and certified teachers who share exciting and unique hands-on learning that allows students to travel outside of the normal classroom experience.
STEAM Express History
The concept for the STEAM Express was proposed in the summer of 2012 by Superintendent, Dr. Jim 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 2014.
In-kind donations of state-of-the-art technology units and materials ensure a unique learning experience for all K-12 students in Klein ISD. The addition of a wheelchair lift provides access to all 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 to the interior placement of learning stations.
