Science With Practice - Getting paid for hands-on learning
My research was part of the Science With Practice program. I observed the use of biofilters at a hog facility and measured ammonia emissions. The biofilter was made up of woodchips, which are used to decompose microbes as the air moves out of the facility.
Science With Practice and club memberships have broadened my experience at Iowa State. I have worked with two professors and have had laboratory experience and attended professional meetings. I hope to continue my education and career focusing on my research.
Planning to study in Denmark
I will be going to Denmark, Germany and Poland next summer! I am excited about the opportunity to broaden my research outlook and learn about agricultural practices in Europe. I enjoy the college’s multitude of opportunities. New students should be sure to take advantage of these opportunities and join clubs. This helps develop your professional, leadership and academic skills.
