The Governor’s 2018 Future Ready Iowa Summit will be held on Tuesday, April 3, from 8 am to 3 pm at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. The purpose of this all-day event is to amplify public conversation about transforming education and the workforce, including expanding work-based learning and computer science instruction.
The Governor’s STEM Advisory Council, which is hosting the summit, hopes to attract an audience of 1,000 leaders from business and industry, PreK-12 and postsecondary education, nonprofits, parents, students, elected officials, and others, who will take information from the summit back to their communities to build upon existing initiatives.
Along, with presentations from experts in the fields of education and business, the day will include work-based learning exhibits and breakout sessions. Registration for the summit is now open with a $50 fee for adults and no charge for students.
