Youth Science Classes

Class Schedule and Fees

We offer Youth Science Classes during both the fall and spring semesters. New class schedules are available mid-September and mid-January. Classes begin in late September/early October and late January/early February. Prices range from $50 to $80, usually dependent on the age of the student and lab supplies.

Youth Science Classes are nonprofit, and we strive to keep costs as low as possible. For registration and additional program information, please call Elizabeth Licon at 503-554-2728.

Starting Out Small           Ages 6 to 8 ($60.00)

Mondays, 3:00-4:00pm, First class is September 26th, EHS Room 103

Teachers: Isabelle Cisneros and Melissa Fox

Small beginnings have come together to create a large and diverse world that we all share.  In these seven weeks, we plan to teach our students about God’s surrounding creation. Starting with cells and ending with God’s great power, the students will get a taste of just about everything in between. Complete with games and group activities, this class will be a fun way to learn together about our great world!



Building Blocks of Engineering This Class is Full         Ages 9-11 ($70.00)

Thursdays, 4:00-5:30pm, First Class is September 29th, EHS Room 202

Teachers: Bryan Fosmire and Nick Juchau

Are you interested in the science behind engineering or the workings of various mechanical devices? In this class we will focus on hands on activities to help our understanding of the world around us, and how we interact with it. This class will explore basic concepts of physics, and the design process.  We will be studying mechanical advantage and accomplishing tasks that we normally can’t do without applying some of the building blocks of engineering that we will learn throughout the course."



What is Organic Chemistry? This Class is Full   Ages 12-14 ($80.00)

Wednesdays, 2:00-4:00pm, First Class is September 28th , EHS Room 302

Teachers: David Degnan and Paige Bergstrom

We all know what our favorite things smell and look like. But have you ever wondered why they smell a certain way? Or why they come in different colors? Or maybe even how they can be made of the same molecules but appear very different? We’ve wondered the same things too! That’s why this class was created for curious young minds who want to better understand the world we live in. It is our hope that through this course you will learn the important principles of Organic Chemistry to prepare you for a future in science.
