To demonstrate this, he had his classes study a single plant in depth and showed them how a whole variety of natural processes—chemical and biological—came into play to produce and nurture it. To Carver, understanding how these different processes interacted was the essence of learning. One of the basic elements of Carver’s philosophy was that nature produced no waste. Instead, what was called “waste” was simply failure to use it properly. To illustrate this concept, Carver would show his students a tangled mass of string that had been thrown away as useless.

They also wanted to put his skills to use in Iowa State’s classrooms, this time on the other side of the teacher’s desk.
