What’s happening with TCA in 2022
Construction will be completed by September 1, 2022 on our new TCA suite in Building 3 at ISU Research Park, from which we will develop and offer year-round, community-based, extracurricular programming that meets the needs of youth in our community.
During Summer 2022, we will be offering several “Summer 2022 Family Experience” programs at different locations throughout Ames.

they should be exploring and engaging in the work of…
to mold their place in society and the natural world. In order to make these types of experiences meaningful, group sizes should be kept smaller.
Students should take an active role in the day-to-day operations of their learning spaces including management of the campus, food preparation, museum curation, travel arrangement, scheduling, and any other decision making they can participate in. Student and staff relationships are real and long-lasting.
