Through a rigorous review process, the STEM Council selected thirteen programs to be offered on the 2023-24 STEM Scale-Up Program menu to provide high-quality STEM education offerings to schools, afterschool programs and other settings for grades pre-K through 12.

These programs range from building robots and coding programs to conducting agricultural field experiences and learning about STEM careers. All underwent a rigorous review process at the national and state levels, demonstrating an appeal to diverse youth, success in improving academic performance, evidence of integrating STEM concepts, development of school-business-community partnerships and sustainability beyond STEM Council financial support.

Since 2012, the STEM Council has partnered with some of the most successful STEM education programs that have reached up to 100,000 young Iowa learners each year, engaging them in exemplary STEM curriculum across the state. Thousands of educators in and out of schools across Iowa have delivered exciting units in robotics, coding, engineering design, agriculture, animal science, and more. Click here to view awardees for the 2023-2024 academic year.
