In 1947 the Iowa Science Talent Search Committee of the Iowa Academy of Science was organized under the leadership of Dr. F. E. Brown, to seek out promising young science students, and encourage them. Science Clubs of America had been encouraging the formation of state science talent searches since 1942. The Iowa Committee and thirty-four other states also conduct searches in cooperation with Science Clubs of America.
