University of Iowa visits local high schools


CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – Representatives from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine spent time today at high schools in North Iowa, giving students a lesson in some of their research.

A professor, graduate student and representative from admissions presented to classes at Clear Lake High School Tuesday morning focusing on STEM programs. Each year the school does this so students across the state know what projects they are working on.

“They are our future healthcare providers, future researchers,” STEM Coordinator for University of Iowa Healthcare Emily Strattan said. “And whether or not they want to go into STEM or not, we’re just trying to provide them the opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering and math.”

They also visited Mason City High School and put on a program for adults at NIACC.
