Sycamore Schools STEAM Aviation Station

Our Goal

  • To increase science, technology, engineering, art, and math (S.T.E.A.M.) opportunities that develop critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and presentation skills.
  • To provide after-school supports in local neighborhoods facing economic hardship.
  • To provide S.T.E.A.M.-related activities for students to access during the school day at our five elementary schools.
  • To reach out to our community outside of the Sycamore Family.

Why Get On Board

  • Thousands of S.T.E.A.M. jobs are unfilled due to lack of qualified workers.
  • Minority workers hold less than 20% of S.T.E.A.M. jobs and females fill less than 5%.
  • Sycamore Schools serves over 5,200 students. 15% of those students qualify for free and reduced lunch benefits.

Our Wheels Are Rolling

Sycamore Schools has begun retrofitting a decommissioned school bus to create a first-of-its-kind classroom on wheels.


Sycamore High School's Engineering, Architecture, and Graphic Design classes are designing the interior and exterior of the bus. These students and teachers have even come up with S.T.E.A.M.-related experiments and activities to be housed in the Aviation Station.

How You Can Help Us Hit The Road

We can't get rolling without your support! Sycamore Schools is currently seeking grants and donations to help renovate the Aviation Station and outfit it with materials and supplies. Please contact Karen Naber, Assistant Superintendent at naberk@sycamoreschools.org for more information.
