GRINNELL, IA—Grinnell College will offer the Adult Community Exploration Series (ACES) throughout the summer with courses taught by faculty in political science, English, and chemistry. The courses are free, and registration is requested to assist instructors in preparing for class needs. All ACES classes will be held on Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Pioneer Room of the college's Old Glove Factory, located at 733 Broad Street in Grinnell, unless otherwise noted.
The facility includes refurbished teaching and research laboratories, classroom and office space, a science library, a computer laboratory, and several study areas. The addition connects two of the wings with a courtyard in between. The building houses the departments of biology, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, physics, and psychology. Containing modern scientific equipment and instrumentation, the facility has laboratories, classrooms, and seminar rooms, which are equipped with electronic and other modern instructional tools.
Two Grinnell students recently won awards for research presentations at the Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) annual meeting in Des Moines. IPS provides networking opportunities for physiologists in applied research and teaching.
“The IPS experience gives the students an opportunity to interact with undergraduate peers in a local setting before potential attendance and presentation on a broader level,” said Clark Lindgren, professor of biology who encouraged the biology students to attend.
