Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds begins a series of community discussions to better STEM education in Iowa.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Reynolds will take the ideas she gathers back to the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. The group is working to raise student interest and achievement in those four key areas.
“We are determined to provide Iowa’s young people with engaging STEM education opportunities, no matter where they live,” said Reynolds. “That will help assure more students are well equipped to be knowledgeable citizens and to someday begin college or career training prepared for success. It also will help assure a stronger STEM employee pipeline for Iowa’s businesses and industries.”
Tuesday’s gatherings take Reynolds to Toledo and Cedar Falls. She’ll be closer to central Iowa Wednesday with stops in Jefferson, Boone and Marshalltown.
