Early in the 1971-72 academic year, letters describing the tenth annual Iowa Science, Engineering and Humanities Symposium were sent to all high school science teachers in Iowa. Letters were also sent to schools in western Illinois that had participated in symposia in previous years. The letters delineated symposium activities such as: (1) renowned speakers presenting recent and future interactions between science and society; (2) visits to university research laboratories; ( 3) student papers on their own research projects; (4) personal interviews with professors to discuss future research and careers; (5) concurrent sessions with leading scientists presenting their present research endeavors; (6) informal rap sessions between small groups of participants and scientists and humanists concerning social implications of science progress.
