Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad recently announced the launch of several education "hubs" throughout the state for science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

A release issued May 4 outlined the responsibilities the six hubs — which include the University of Iowa — will have including opening communications to business, educational institutions, nonprofit groups and other institutions in their region.

"These six regional STEM network hubs will be the driving force offering Iowa youngsters more opportunities to learn about STEM, which will better prepare them to someday consider STEM careers," Branstad said in the release.

The STEM centers also include Iowa Lakes Community College, University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University, Southwestern Community College, Kirkwood Community College, and Drake University.

The Branstad administration will introduce more information in a press conference at 9 a.m. today
