Elevate Advanced Manufacturing

Welcome to the Elevate Iowa Educator Resources tool!

Our mission is to provide tools for educators to assist in allowing students, parents and school personnel the opportunity to learn about the great careers available in Advanced Manufacturing. This program will allow you to request a speaker from a local manufacturer, inquire about field trip possibilities at real manufacturing facilities and to make a custom request.
