Welcome to the Real-World Inspired Classrooms community! 

This is a site for teachers to share and browse lesson ideas that will bring relevance and applicability into the classroom. The ideas and lessons on this site are the product of teacher-externs of the Real World Externships program, often based on their summer experience working in local businesses and industries. Click the Externships logo below if you are interested in becoming a teacher-extern. 

This site is intended to be by teachers for teachers; have a resource or lesson you want to add or edit? Email Externships@iowaSTEM.gov.
