Charles City, Iowa –
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is celebrating their impact on Iowa’s population during extension week.
Floyd County Executive Director Lesley Milius says their office is more than just helping 4-H’ers.
Extension programs reached one-in-five Iowa K-12 last year with hopes of them turning the world over to the next generation better than they found it, according to the University.
One of their focuses with students is science, technology, engineering and math.
Their office provides opportunities to build STEM skills.
In addition, one of the yearly showcases for student talents is the Floyd County Fair.
Milius tells North Iowa News, it’s takes an entire year to plan it.
Not only does the office provides local support, but allows people to find research and help just like if you were on the ISU Campus.
There are 1,200 faculty and staff across their 99 county campuses.
The extension office provides a wide array of programs.
