The State Hygienic Laboratory Job Shadow Program

The Hygienic Laboratory works with several Iowa schools to give students opportunities to view an environmental and public health laboratory in operation. This is accomplished by following our trained staff through a portion of their work day. Through these job shadowing experiences, students watch staff perform their duties in chemistry and microbiology labs, and possibly in other areas of the Hygienic Laboratory. Job shadowing for junior high and high school students may be initiated by student-career ventures such as The Workplace Learning Connection or by individual schools.
