Hazard Mitigation

Hazard Mitigation

The hazard mitigation team works with your community to identify potential risks and how to prevent those risks. This helps make our communities a safer place to live.

By doing this, communities could be eligible for federal and state grant money if a disaster occurs.

Make Plans to Attend the NE Iowa Family STEM Festival

Posted: Wed, April 8, 2015

Families throughout Northeast Iowa are invited to attend the Northeast Iowa Family STEM Festival on Thursday, April 30, from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Northeast Iowa Community College Wilder Business Center, 1625 Highway 150 South, Calmar, Iowa. The festival is free and open to the public.

Over 30 activities and organizations will be at this hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) festival created especially for 3rd-8th grade students and their families. Attendees can view the night sky from a star lab, fly a flight simulator, conduct amazing science experiments, and much more!

The goals of this festival are to increase students’ interests in STEM and to promote awareness and understanding of the importance of STEM-related educational and career opportunities.

The Northeast Iowa Family STEM Festival is a community-wide partnership led by Northeast Iowa Region Governor’s STEM Advisory Council at University of Northern Iowa, Northeast Iowa Business Network (in part, by the Iowa Economic Development Authority), Northeast Iowa Community College, Keystone AEA, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, IowaWorks, and Upper Exploreland Regional Planning Commission.

The Northeast STEM Region, managed by Jeff Beneke, is one of six Iowa STEM Regions guided by the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and dedicated to building a strong STEM education foundation for all Iowans. For more information about this STEM Region or the Iowa STEM Network, contact Jeff Beneke at 319-273-7397 or go to http://www.neiowastem.com.
