Explore Science Club is coming to Island City School!
GO STEM (Greater Oregon Science Technology Engineering & Math)
Explore science after school is a fun, hands-on setting with local scientists. You’ll learn about things like drones from an information technology manager, map making from a geographer, fish habitat from fisheries biologists and about bat adaptations from a wildlife biologist.
-- The number of participants will be limited to 15, so sign up quickly!
-- All sessions will be held at Island City School, on Wednesdays from 2:45 - 4:30.
-- GO STEM will provide snacks.
