  • SCIENCE BOUND is a premier program at Iowa State University, which strives to engage ethnically diverse middle and high school students from twenty Iowa schools in education and research opportunities in the fields of Agriculture, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (ASTEM). Students enroll in the SCIENCE BOUND program at the beginning of the 8th grade, and they must maintain a 3.0 grade point average as they participate in science fairs and summer programs, prepare and give oral presentations, tour labs and meet with students and staff at ISU.
