Two important education phenomena are happening concurrently across the state of Iowa. First, it should be no surprise that the number of computers and computer science course offerings in high school is steadily increasing while the number of microcomputers in students' homes is also becoming greater. These factors have led to an overall increase in the number of high school students interacting with computers across the state. Second, feedback received from a variety of sources including state and regional science teachers' meetings, talented and gifted conferences (TAG), student science fair and symposia competitions and high school in-service visitations by Area Education Agency and university personnel, indicate that the number of high school science teachers sponsoring student participation in independent research projects is growing.
