Congratulations to these 10 school districts and their business/community partners in the SE Iowa STEM Region that received an award for the STEM BEST® H.D. (High Demand) Program! 🎉

The STEM BEST® H.D. Program is the result of a special appropriation from the Iowa legislature to expand the STEM BEST® (Businesses Engaging Student and Teachers) Program to focus efforts on job sectors that are in high demand (computer science/information technology, healthcare professions, and advanced manufacturing). It will help build partnerships between schools and businesses, allowing educators and industry professionals to work together to develop curriculum and projects that prepare students for careers in these high-demand fields.
