Teachers can gain real world experience
Real World Externships is a program for teachers to get the experience they need to show students how science, technology and math fit into real-world jobs. For five years, the Real World Externships Program has matched science, technology and math teachers with Iowa businesses for six weeks during the summer, allowing teachers to work side-by-side with their business world counterparts to see how school subjects are used in the workplace.
This is another great way to enhance the competitiveness of Iowa in a global economy, which is increasingly dependent upon science, technology and math talent. To learn more or to apply to for an externship, go to http://iowastem.gov/imsep/educators/externships.
