July 09, 2021 11:31am
Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa governor's STEM Advisory Council have announced 22 new STEM BEST Program models for 2021, and two of them are in Sioux County.
STEM BEST, which stands for Businesses Engaging Students and Teachers, brings together schools and businesses to create STEM learning experiences to prepare students for in-demand careers.
Among the newly announced program partnerships are the Sioux Center Community School District and the MOC-Floyd Valley Community School District.
To be considered for the program, applicants were required to submit a comprehensive proposal that incorporates STEM curriculum, partnerships with community businesses or organizations, real-world learning opportunities and expertise at the post-secondary education and training level.
Each of the districts receiving a partnership are also awarded $25,000 each. Officials say that money can be used for the curriculum development and coordination, educator training and development in workplace-classroom integration and preparing the work-based learning environment.
