Science Bound

Science Bound is Iowa State University’s premier pre-college program to empower Iowa students of color to pursue degrees and careers in STEM (science technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. We engage middle and high school students from Des Moines, Denison, and Marshalltown, Iowa. To participate in our nine-year program, students begin when they enter eighth grade and graduate from Science Bound once they graduate from college.

Science Bound's First Iowa State University Graduate is now an
associate scientist, researcher and facility manager for the
Macromolecular X-ray Crystallography facility at ISU.
