Prairie Lakes AEA


Connecting the Dots STEM Academy

STEM is not just about teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; it is a culture that needs to be cultivated to help create the problem solving, critical thinking workforce of tomorrow. During this STEM Academy, Discovery Education will help open up your thinking to embrace STEM education beyond the traditional subjects and beyond your classrooms walls. 

The academy is planned from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. July 30 at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory, 1838 Hwy.  86,  Milford. Click here for more information and to register. 


Take a few minutes to learn how the people in Iowa's Area Education Agencies worked together with families, kids, teachers and many other to impact lives.



The start of a school year is a busy, and exciting time! Prairie Lakes AEA is hosting a new administrator welcome for new principals, superintendents and other administrators who are new to PLAEA. The purpose of this welcome is to share the many resources at your AEA that will help your district in the journey to increase student learning. With almost 20 new administrators in Prairie Lakes AEA this year, it’s a great opportunity to increase awareness and understanding of our services.  It’s also a good time to match names with the faces of some of our staff members.

Aug. 8  (Friday) Virtual morning  (connect from wherever you are)
