Sharing Resources and Expertise

Education and outreach are important to the IFC mission.


Talented University of Iowa students work with IFC researchers, gaining hands-on training and expertise in a number of academic areas, preparing them to solve complex problems in the future.


The IFC’s core mission includes widely sharing information about the center’s resources and tools. Outreach efforts include STEM festivals and K-12 classroom visits, free webinars for the public, and public meetings and demonstrations.
