Marshalltown Community School District

The Marshalltown Science Bound program began in 2005 as a pilot funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) through Science Bound. With community support, the program had its official start in 2006.

In 2023, high school scholars participated in Vet Bound, a unique one-day, hands-on experience to learn about veterinary and animal careers. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Center for Animal Health. They engaged in veterinarian activities and lab demonstrations.

Meanwhile, Miller Middle School Science Bound students kicked off their year with an orientation experience on ISU campus, where they were joined by Denison and Clarke rising 8th-graders. They also learned about environmental sciences and goal setting at the Boone Y Camp retreat, and completed exemplary science fair projects and reflection essays.
