Iowa STEM BEST Program
Iowa STEM BEST Program
(Businesses Engaging Students & Teachers)
Awarded in NC Region
We would like to congratulate Story County Consortium for being chosen by the STEM Council’s executive committee for the STEM BEST (Businesses Engaging Students and Teachers) award. By collaborating with business stakeholders, these awardees describe how they plan to bridge these two cultures through education programing.
  • Story County Consortium‘s STEM curriculum will affect seven school districts (Ames, Ballard, Collins-Maxwell, Colo-NESCO, Gilbert, Nevada and Roland-Story). They plan to partner with Des Moines Area Community College, the Ames Chamber of Commerce, Ames Economic Development Commission and multiple Story County business to help implement problem-based and interdisciplinary STEM curriculum in order to meet the community’s education and economic development needs.
