Let North Dakota’s Gateway to Science bring hands-on STEM activities to YOU!

We are at capacity for STEMZones through the end of May 2024.


Let North Dakota’s Gateway to Science on the Go bring educational experiences to your school or community! We offer engaging, hands-on learning experiences for K-12 students that cultivate interest and 21st-century skills. STEMzone events allow students to engage in hands-on, high-energy learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, and math.

STEMzone is a rentable carnival-style event designed to engage everyone! An NDGTS staff member delivers hands-on activities to your organization. You supply tables and volunteers to assist with the activities! The Jamestown Sun article Lincoln Elementary has STEM Day provides a good overview of how a STEMzone program looks and how it can benefit students.

Please review the information about the STEMzone base package, available add-ons, and requirements for holding an event, then complete the STEMzone Request Form below.

Event Expectations and Requirements


  • The best location for a STEMzone is in a large open room like a gym where guests can move between stations at their own pace.


  • Only one STEMzone staff member will arrive at your event.
  • 3-4 volunteers are needed to help unload and set up activities, as the staff member will not be able to set up alone.
  • Tables must be set up before STEMzone arrives.


  • At least 15 adult volunteers are needed for the duration of the event (some stations require 2 volunteers). If there are fewer than 15 volunteers, activities will be cut.
  • Adult volunteers are expected at their stations 15 minutes before the event starts to become familiar with the activity and ask questions of STEMzone staff.
  • When the event ends, volunteers staffing the STEMzone stations will pack up their stations and help load the van.

Cancellation Policy

  • There is a $50 service charge for programs that are canceled less than 48 hours in advance.
