Mailing address and office location

The Intel STEM Center renovations are taking longer than the summer. I am able to collect mail from the Health and Science School office, but please send me an email to let me know if you have mailed something. I will be working from home until the renovation is finished.

Saturday Academy's Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering program matches high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with scientists and engineers for 8-week summer internships in a professional scientific or engineering environment.  Most of the interns are awarded school credit for their work and an $1,000 stipend for the summer. 

Interns assist one or more professionals who serve as mentors and gain first-hand, pre-professional experience in the mentors' career field. Some interns work on a specific project that they can complete by summer's end, some interns contribute for eight weeks to an ongoing larger project, and some participate in multiple smaller projects and tasks that represent the range of work for that field of science or engineering.  We offer internships throughout Oregon, and support internships through a network of teacher monitors and ASE staff around the state.

Oregon State Fair - Science competition

Who: Middle school grade students (6th, 7th or 8th grade level - currently enrolled)
What: Science & Technology Competition
When: Monday 08/31/09
Where:  Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem, Oregon
Why: To foster Science & Technology education and innovation

The 2009 competition will comprise of middle school students currently enrolled in the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. The middle school grade competition will be a derivative of the current competition guidelines developed by Intel Northwest Science Expo (NWSE). The guidelines set forth by Intel NWSE were selected due to the familiarity and program awareness by Oregon Science Teachers.

There are several changes for the 2009 science competition. In 2008, the competition was open to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. In 2009, the science competition will be open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The categories have also been expanded to cover more competitive categories. In addition, the science competition will be entirely open-class. There is no longer a requirement to roll-up from a county fair.
