December 5-11, 2022
The T in STEM represents the power of technology - computing especially, to open worlds of opportunity for young Iowans to improve how we work and live. Computational Thinking Skills (Decomposition, Pattern Recognition, abstraction and algorithms) helps inspire students to be problem solvers, innovators and creators. These skills are essential for our future workforce. Check out the events and resources below to get involved.
