STEM Academy @ Oregon State University: (formally known as Saturday Academy @ OSU)
STEM Academy is a non-profit, extracurricular, pre-college education program hosted by Oregon State University. The program, chartered at OSU since 1986, enlists community professionals to share their facilities, equipment, and expertise through hands-on classes, workshops, and mentor-ships to extend and augment the science curriculum of the school systems. STEM Academy places special emphasis on the sciences, math and technology. Financial assistance is available to all who qualify.
STEM programs are not just limited to TAG students. For information about our summer programs, please click on this link.
STEM Academy (previously Saturday Academy) inspires young people to explore their world through hands-on learning with community experts and professionals. Our goal is to reinforce the joy of learning, assist young people in developing intellectually and help them prepare for rewarding careers. We strive to make our experiences available to all students who seek them, and to affirmatively reach out to those who might not otherwise participate. We value all learning and offer experiences in many disciplines. We emphasize the sciences, especially engineering, technology and health sciences, because of the rapid rate of change in these fields and their essential role in modern life.
Note: these STEM programs are not limited to TAG students. If you have any questions about the programs, please check out their website.
