2019 STEM Summit

Innovative education-workplace partnerships are emerging across Iowa, bringing value to employers while inspiring tomorrow's workers in today's classrooms. This is the future of school. The STEM Education + Workplace Partnerships - Governor's 2019 Future Ready Iowa Summit will profile these pioneers to equip invitees -- leaders from business and industry, education, nonprofits, elected officials, students and others -- to enact or expand upon early successes that dot the state. Models across the spectrum will be showcased, including rural and urban, elementary and secondary, technical and pre-professional, public and private, autonomous and collaborative, global companies and local employers.. 


Thank you to our SPONSORS for helping make this an inspiration for growing education-workplace partnerships across Iowa!
