Key Aspects


  • STEM Enrichment Activities
    • Enrichment activities will be formally coordinated with secondary educators and their students throughout the school year. Technical instructors will engage with students in-person and remotely. Technical instructors will deliver content related to their area of expertise and the curriculum students are learning in school.
  • In-Person STEM Summer Camp
    • The summer camp provides K-12 teachers the opportunity to learn new STEM technology and then apply their new knowledge and skills as they support the STEM Summer Camp. This fosters collaborative relationships between K-12 educators and technical instructors. The students benefit from a fun hands-on experience that is facilitated by technical instructors and taught by K-12 teachers. Parents and industry partners come in at the end of the camp to interface with students and see the projects that were completed.
  • Online STEM Summer Courses
    • These courses provide an opportunity for rural and remote students to have a fun and engaging hands-on STEM experience. STEM kits are mailed to students a week prior to each course. There are synchronous and asynchronous courses available to students.


Strategic Goals


  • Provide ignition experiences for K-12 students
  • Provide effective K-12 educator professional development
  • Create a successful program that effectively promotes continued education
  • Support the growth and reputation of ISU programs as leaders in Engineering and Technology
  • Collaborate with other STEM-related activities
