STEM Innovator® SUG
Wednesday, January 16, 2019

STEM Innovator® was named one of ten STEM Scale-Up Programs for Iowa educators in the 2019 - 2020 academic year. Through legislative appropriation, the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council is able to offer exemplary STEM programs throughout the state.

STEM Innovator® Professional Development empowers educators to design a unique innovation model for their school and district. Educators transform classrooms into incubator spaces where student teams solve real-world problems alongside industry mentors. Currently, STEM Innovator® educators have provided over 62,782 secondary students with the opportunity to engage in the innovation, invention and entrepreneurship process.

Through the scale-up program, Iowa teachers who apply and are selected receive a $975 stipend, have the ability to earn up to 5 graduate credits, may offer college credit to high school students, and will receive access to the STEM Innovator® toolkit with curriculum, instruction, and assessment resources.
