The Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council seeks schools wishing to establish and innovative, replicable Iowa model of the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) Program. CAPS originated by Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, KS, and now occurs in four additional locations across the country, including Waukee, Iowa (see Additional CAPS Models below.)
- Northland CAPS immerses students in professional environments without the need for new buildings or classrooms.
The Council has designated a portion of the state legislative funding to promote Iowa STEM CAPS programs, with the goal of uniting the expertise of public and private sectors to strengthen the continuum from school to careers. The number of proposals accepted will depend upon available funds and proposal requests.
To learn more about the CAPS model in Iowa, join one of our webinars on August 12 at 1:00 p.m. CSD or August 20 at 9:00 a.m. CSD. Please check back for the link to the webinar.
