Educator Information

Are you a math teacher wanting to show the relevance of math concepts in the workplace? Or are you a career or technical education instructor wanting to provide your students with a real-world experience?

As a teacher in our Western Iowa Tech service area we want to help enhance your curriculum. We can also provide opportunity for you to expand your industry knowledge by providing you the opportunity to spend time at a worksite that is directly related to your curriculum.

Teacher Externship
Participate in a week-long summer internship in an industry that aligns with your curriculum.

Classroom Speakers
Host an industry person who will share their personal experience of preparing for his/her career, the rewards and challenges experienced, and offer advice.

Worksite Tours
