Finding Her Environment

Sometimes it takes just one event to change the course of someone’s future. According to Lily Conrad, this was definitely the case when it came to her education. Lily, now a senior and an Environmental Science major, originally came to the University of Northern Iowa to study Exercise Science.

A New Horizon: Exploring Space Education

A single trip to the NASA Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) gave two UNI students an entirely new perspective on space education. This experience inspired them and a UNI professor to share the ideas and methods they learned with other pre-service teachers in the form of a workshop, which was covered in last week’s story and will be free to students.
