STEM B.E.S.T. Application Opens
A priority for the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council for 2020-2021 is to expand the community of innovative, replicable STEM work-based learning models, known as
Iowa STEM BEST® (Businesses Engaging Students and Teachers) Program.
The goal of STEM BEST® Program is to unite educators and employers to expand the learning continuum from school to careers.
A hallmark of Iowa STEM education is the connection of classroom learning to meaning beyond the school walls. Overarching guidelines are provided to assist proposers. These guidelines allow for ample flexibility in design to encourage and support organic development of STEM BEST® Programs which match local strengths, challenges and resources. STEM BEST® Program models are open to K-12 public and non-public school applicants. Past STEM BEST® Program award recipients are eligible to apply for expanding current programs.
