As of 2015, we have 53% of high schools across Iowa actively participating in the Iowa Youth Institute. Last year at the 2015 Iowa Youth Institute we had 251 students from 123 high schools attend the event. Below is a map of all of the schools that have participated since 1994 and a special designation for schools that have had a Borlaug Ruan Intern.
Since 1994, over 1,000 Iowa high school students and 400 teachers from 200 high schools across the state have participated in the Global Youth Institute.
In addition, more than 200 Iowa high school students have traveled to Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East through the Borlaug-Ruan International Internship program to work alongside renowned scientists at leading research centers.
