Youth Science Classes

Would your child love learning while performing cool science experiments?

General Information

The GFU Science Outreach Program offers science classes for children in our community during the fall and spring semesters. These classes allow students to learn about the wonders of God’s creation in a laboratory using equipment not readily available elsewhere. These classes are experiential, hands-on, and lab based.

The age range for classes varies from 6 to 15 years. Each class is held once a week for a 7-week session; they are completed within one semester. Class size is limited and topics vary each session and semester. The areas of science studied may include General Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and/or Computer Science. Please feel free to contact the Science Outreach Administrator with questions about the classes.

Instructors

The classes are taught by GFU undergraduate students majoring in science. Each class is team taught with two instructors, giving each student more one-on-one assistance. This program allows GFU student instructors an opportunity to be a resource to their community and share their passion for science.

Class Fees & Scholarships

The class fee covers the cost of instructor payroll, class supplies and field trip expenses if applicable. Fees vary from class to class depending on lab and/or field trip expenses. Please see the Class Schedule & Fees page for the most recent class schedule and fee information.

George Fox University makes every effort to keep the cost of these classes as low as possible while maintaining the highest possible quality of instruction. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. As scholarship monies are limited, a student may receive only one scholarship per year. Please follow the link above for more scholarship applicant information.
