Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds today (Thursday) announced a series of town hall meetings will be held across Iowa, with regard to “The importance of giving students a great education in science, technology, engineering and math.”
Reynolds is co-chair of the Governor’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Advisory Council along with Mary Andringa, CEO of the Vermeer Corporation. The Council’s goal is to raise student interest and achievement in STEM and building a stronger STEM workforce.
The tour this spring will update Iowans on the progress being made by the Council, showcase student STEM presentations and seek feedback from community members about how the Council should set STEM priorities moving forward. Governor Branstad, Mary Andringa and local business leaders will join Reynolds at select town halls.
The public is welcome to attend STEM town hall events, one of which will be held in Corning on Tuesday, March 6th, beginning at 1:30-p.m. Lt. Gov. Reynolds and Gov. Branstad will be in attendance for the meeting, to be held in the Southwest Valley High School Auditorium.
