The Iowa STEM Advisory Council -- a partnership of various stakeholders from private businesses to schools -- has expanded science, technology, engineering and math education to approximately 40,000 students around the state as part of the Scale-Up initiative. The primary goal of the council is to boost the level of STEM participation, especially in traditionally underserved areas. The result is a boom of STEM-related activities, including robotics clubs and family STEM nights.
