Effective January 2016. a new initiative will drastically change the face of FRC in Iowa. An application submitted by mentor Kenton Swartley has been selected as one of the 11 STEM programs to receive Iowa Scale-Up funding. The Scale-Up initiative is a state funded program allocating more the $3.1 million per year for increasing involvement in STEM programs. This award will provide $8,000 to each new Iowa FRC team to help with registration fees and mentor training. Some of our team members will help organize mentor training.
