A $10,000 Bayer Fund grant will support the Science Center of Iowa’s new program Making Tech Connections, a professional development program for educators teaching students employment skills in computing, algorithms and programming. Making Tech Connections will also show educators how to incorporate liberal arts competencies into STEM education. In 2020, Bayer Fund awarded more than $17 million to more than 3,400 charitable and nonprofit organizations to address essential needs in food and nutrition, STEM education and community development.
