Mary Andringa next co-chair of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council

(Continued)

Des Moines —

In May, the council created a network of six regional STEM hubs to meet local STEM needs across the state. In October, the council announced that more than 800 schools and community organizations will participate in scale-up programs in 2012-13 provided through the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. A generous $4.7 million appropriation from the 2012 Legislature is making the council’s work possible.

The Governor’s STEM Advisory Council’s priorities moving forward include establishing STEM-focused schools to offer students more STEM education opportunities, building an online portal to house a best practices clearinghouse, and increasing retention of top math and science teachers.
