An open critic of U.S. foreign policy — who is a former Bush administration State Department official and retired U.S. Army officer — will speak at Iowa State. Retired U.S. Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson will present "Redefining Global and National Security" at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Memorial Union Great Hall. His talk is part of the university's World Affairs Series, and is free and open to the public.
Michael Young wants to help students excel in science, technology, engineering and math by bridging the cultural divide that exists in many public schools. The fact that it exists is not intentional, but Young says we need to acknowledge it in order to move forward. Young’s motivation stems from his own childhood experiences.
Iowa State University to take part in center of excellence focused on vector-borne diseases such as Zika, West Nile

ISU researchers have built a prototype biomimetic tree that generates electricity when wind blows through its artificial leaves. The researchers think such technology may help people charge household appliances without the need for large wind turbines.
Shocking is one word Jill Pruetz uses to describe the behavior she witnessed after a chimp was killed at her research site in Fongoli, Senegal.

Iowa State's Neal Iverson, who has studied glaciers in Iceland and Norway, is working with an international team on two projects that aim to build more realistic computer models of glacier flow. The researchers hope to understand how glaciers will speed up over the next century as the climate warms. They say that could help them predict how much glaciers will contribute to the rise of sea levels.
