The high school program requirements include:
- Weekly meetings with Science Bound teachers
- Visits to Iowa State University
- Maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or higher
- Presenting a successful oral justification yearly

During the senior year, students and families participate in Countdown to College.
Countdown to Iowa State was developed to help students and families make the transition from high school to college. This program steps families through the process, in addition to bringing many of Iowa State’s resources directly to the district. Countdown is a requirement for all senior Science Bound students in the districts where it is available.
Please contact the Science Bound offices at 515-669-0667 or via email for meeting information.
