Securing beef eyes and hearts from a butcher shop, obtaining white rats from the Quad Cities Dairy Council, annual tours of a generating plant, regular fossil hunts at a limestone quarry, tours of the geology museum at Augustana College, judging of our Why "X" Science Fair by community personnel, visitation by a local doctor on the dangers of smoking and lung cancer, glass blowing by an individual from a local advertising agency, as well as our prize visit on cryogenics with Mr. Edwin M. Vaughan from the Research Office of the U.S. Army Weapons Command, all attest to the wide but selective use of community resources in our intermediate science program at the Riverdale Intermediate School, The School Township of Pleasant Valley, Pleasant Valley, Iowa.
