CEDAR FALLS, Iowa ï¾– The University of Northern Iowa's 40th annual Science, Mathematics and Technology Symposium will take place Thursday, Nov. 7, on the UNI campus.

Todd Eisworth, UNI assistant professor of mathematics, will present 'This statement is false: self-reference and incompleteness in mathematics,' at 3:30 p.m. in the Maucker Union Expansion. The speech explains how English and mathematics interact. The presentation is part of the symposium, but the public may attend free of charge.

The annual symposium is attended by hundreds of Iowa high school students, their parents, teachers and counselors. During the event, high school seniors compete for four-year tuition scholarships in the sciences, mathematics or technology, as well as several partial-tuition scholarships in the sciences.

Scholarship competitors test in the morning and finalists are interviewed in the afternoon. Scholarship winners are announced at the conclusion of the symposium. Participants also receive career information and introductions to programs, resources and faculty in the College of Natural Sciences.

The symposium is sponsored by the UNI College of Natural Sciences. Additional event information is available at www.cns.uni.edu/scisymp/.
