Science may often be considered a discipline of absolutes and systematized knowledge, but science education in Iowa need not be so. To the young and enthusiastic Iowa student scientist there are a number of educational opportunities available that are exciting and relevant, as well as several which take place outside of the classroom. These extracurricular opportunities are designed to allow the secondary science student to realize a few of his educational aspirations while interacting directly with other professionals and student scientists from the state. Since I have been involved personally with some of the unique Iowa science educational opportunities as a high school student and now as a college student at The University of Iowa, it is obvious that they have been of great importance in helping me develop my scientific interests.
