The Wartburg Science Symposium is a one-day workshop designed to give science- and math-oriented high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to pursue, in depth, specific areas in contemporary science, engineering, and psychology. Each workshop, led by Wartburg College faculty or a team of clinical laboratory scientists from ASCLS-IA, consists of six to 12 students and the instructor. The structure is informal and encourages close interpersonal contacts. Each student participates in only one workshop. Through interacting with other students and professors, students are exposed to the activities of other members of the symposium. Student participants are encouraged to share their experiences and newly gained knowledge with their high school teachers and students after the symposium, and should feel free to interact further with professors and other symposium student participants.
Some high school seniors may qualify to participate in a Knights Priority Scholarship Day, one of which is being held the day after the symposium.
All Science Symposium application materials must be received no later than Oct. 27, 2017. These include:
- Completed application, available only online from this website below.
- Official high school transcript showing grade point average, class rank, and ACT/SAT scores. Workshop assignments will be emailed to attendees in early November.
