The Wartburg Science Symposium is a workshop designed to give science- and math-oriented high school 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. 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. All participants qualify for an honor scholarship up to $1,500 per year. Details are below.
Some high school seniors may qualify to participate in a Knights Scholarship Day, one of which is being held the day after the symposium.
