Over the next 10 years, the number of STEM-related jobs will increase by 16 percent. It is crucial to Iowa’s economic growth to fill these roles with qualified candidates and it all starts with inspiring students to pursue STEM fields.
The Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and Kemin Industries joined together to honor teachers who are inspiring Iowa’s students to develop a passion for STEM subjects. This award is for teachers who are making a significant difference in the lives of students across the state by providing excellent curriculum, encouraging lifelong learning and inspiring a passion for STEM beyond the classroom and into the future.
Formerly known as The STEM Education Award for Inspired Teaching, this award will honor one teacher from each of the six STEM regions for their contribution and dedication to STEM education in Iowa.
