Few people know that there is an Aerospace Education Council of Iowa, though it is entering its 25th year of existence. On December 17, 1956, almost a year before Sputnik, Iowa established an Air-Age Education Council under the auspices of the State Department of Public Instruction. This organization was to sponsor appropriate research, suggest needed curriculum change, and encourage the incorporation of air-age information in all areas of the curriculum, particularly in the social, physical and natural sciences.
