The Challenge Saturdays Program is an academic program for high-ability elementary and junior high students (grades 2-8) that takes place over a series of 5 Saturdays in the fall semester on The University of Iowa campus.

Students are not required to participate in the Belin-Blank Exceptional Student Talent Search (BESTS); however, we encourage all students to participate in BESTS in order to learn more about readiness for academic challenge.

Fall 2015 classes will be available soon.
