Afternoon STEM Discovery Camps

Registration currently open through end of December.

Eugene Science Center is offering afternoon programming on site for students in grades 1-5.

Afternoon STEM Discovery camps are not meant to take the place of distance learning. While we can accommodate the needs of students who need to join synchronous distance learning meetings for school, the purpose of these afternoon programs is to provide fun educational opportunities after online school work is complete. Camps will include hands-on STEM activities and games, both indoors and outdoors, for elementary age students. 

After a successful 12 week summer camp program, our staff and volunteers are fully confident in our ability to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment this Fall. We are following all state guidelines for disease prevention. To learn more about COVID-19 policies, download the Parent Information Letter.

Morning Academic Support: Distance Learning at ESC

Registration currently open through end of December.

Eugene Science Center is now offering morning child care for 1st – 5th grade students in distance learning programs. Our staff educators will assist your student with online school work and provide engaging breaks between school activities.

This is not a science camp and is only recommended for students who will spend most of their morning in online distance learning. 

Students should bring from home their school-provided tablet or laptop, headphones with a microphone, and any other school supplies they may need for the day.

Students should also bring a packed lunch and water bottle.

Drop-Off is from 8:00am – 8:30am

Pick-up is from 12:00pm to 12:30pm, unless your child is also registered for the afternoon STEM Discovery Camp.

Curiosity, engaged!

Our STEM programs bring out the scientist in every child. Staff educators tune in to the unique needs, skills, and interests of their students to create an engaging and inclusive learning environment. These half-day camps incorporate indoor activities and outdoor adventures as a complement to your student’s regular education. We make learning fun, and our programs inspire a life-long respect for scientific thinking.

Each half day camp features new STEM activities – no two days are the same! Examples of activities include coding challenges, nature hikes, chemistry experiments, and designing a flying machine!
