STEM Regions

To help create awareness and a voice for every Iowan, the Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council divided the state into six STEM regions and appointed one regional STEM manager to each location.

Regional STEM managers represent each region in a variety of ways. Besides providing a clear voice for each region, managers also help facilitate access to STEM educational opportunities like STEM Scale-Up Programs; create knowledge about all STEM components and collaborate with businesses, organizations and formal and informal education agencies to increase student engagement in STEM.
