George Washington Carver Academy is a fitting name for the state’s first STEM middle school. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math receive special attention in course offerings. The attached Dick Young Greenhouse also serves as a learning lab for students and is a base for master gardeners and a community-use facility. Our school is named after George Washington Carver, who was born in 1864 and died in 1943. He was an educator, horticulturist, farmer and artist. He attended Iowa Agricultural College, now Iowa State University, where he received a degree in agriculture science in 1894. Carver first attended Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, where he studied piano and art. He then transferred to Iowa State, receiving a bachelor’s degree and a master of science degree in 1896. Carver went on in life to develop 300 new products derived from peanuts, sweet potatoes and soybeans.
