High School Students


If space is available, some students are invited to participate in Science Bound the first semester of their freshman year of high school. At this level, students meet weekly with Science Bound high school teachers and visit Iowa State University three times every year to meet participation requirements. Participants must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 of higher and are required to present a successful oral justification yearly for continuation. Science Bound students must also participate in a summer academic or science, technology, engineering, or mathematics career experience. Des Moines Students entering the 9th grade MUST attend Learn and Earn and may attend Learn and Earn through the 11th Grade.
