A new Iowa State program enhances teaching of STEM in elementary school
Iowa State University and Des Moines Public Schools recently received a $4.5 million grant to improve the teaching of science, technology, engineering and math in elementary schools. The Trinect program brings together a Des Moines teacher, an ISU student teacher, and a graduate engineering student to an elementary classroom one day a week. The program is designed to bring together these 3 experts in different fields to better educate students on STEM subjects. The Trinect program will continue for 5 years, but it's already having a positive impact on students and teachers alike.
