Iowa's STEM Initiative

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are the springboards to innovative problem-solving and discovery. Iowa is committed to growing the best STEM educational programming for every learner.
 
In July 2011, Executive Order 74 created the Governor’s Advisory Council as a partnership of business, policy and education leaders from across the state. The council is co-chaired by Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds and University of Northern Iowa’s President Benjamin Allen.
 
Through a competitive application process, Iowa State University was designated as the North Central HUB of the Iowa Regional STEM Network. Each region is charged with promoting and implementing quality STEM programming throughout the state.
