Iowa Interactive Partners With The Iowa Mathematics And Science Education Partnership To Launch New STEM Web Site

Stocks in this article: EGOV

Iowa Interactive and the Iowa Mathematics and Science Education Partnership (IMSEP) have collaborated to create the new Web site which offers Iowans an online one-stop for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and innovation information.

The Web site, http://www.IowaSTEM.gov offers comprehensive access to essential STEM information for educators, students, families and children.

"We are excited to provide this resource for Iowans," said Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, co-chair of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council along with University of Northern Iowa President Benjamin Allen. "This user-friendly Web site brings everyone up to date on the importance of STEM. From learning what is happening in state-level STEM, to fun activities families can do at home to spark that sense of wonder with their children, there is something here for everyone."

The Web site targets a broad range of interests with each page providing detailed information about education, civic and recreational opportunities and innovation happenings across the state. This page will also serve as the landing page for the Governor's STEM Advisory Council, showcasing Iowa's targeted priorities for action planning. Designers considered three main audiences when regarding site content: students, educators and parents. Students can look for STEM careers, cool Web sites and click through Iowa’s community college offerings, as well as public and private colleges and universities. Parents will like the various resources to invigorate their children's interest in math, science, engineering and technology as well as links to STEM events occurring around the state. Educators can browse for classroom resources and afterschool programming ideas.

"The new Web site, IowaSTEM.gov, is a powerful extension of the work of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council," said Jeff Weld, the council’s executive director. “Our promise to deliver to citizens of the state a world-class STEM education includes delivery on access to information and opportunity, which the new site helps us to do.”

The creation of the Web site was a collaboration of IMSEP and Iowa Interactive, a subsidiary of NIC. Iowa Interactive also created the governor and lt. governor’s Web sites, as well as the Iowa Education Summit Web site which highlights efforts that are outcomes of last year’s Iowa Education Summit. Each of these sites was built at no cost to the taxpayers by leveraging Iowa Interactive’s self-funded model.
