Eugene Science Center's New Friday Afternoon Drop-Off Program
Science After School is a new program developed by Eugene Science Center in response to Friday early release days in local schools. The program is an opportunity for Kindergarten through 5th grade students (and the home school equivalent) to explore science in a fun, hands-on setting. Science After School is led by experienced STEM educators and incorporates both structured and open-ended inquiry based learning opportunities. Advance registration is required.
Time: Fridays, 1:00 to 6:00 pm – See Calendar for Full Day (8am – 6pm) program dates and Holiday Schedule
Price: Varies. Save money and guarantee a spot in every program by registering for the full semester. For greater flexibility, purchase a set of 5, 10, or 20 Multipass tickets, good for one year. Eugene Science Center Members receive huge discounts on registration. Learn about memberships at this link.
Scholarships: Limited need-based partial scholarships are available. Contact the Education Director at [email protected] to learn more about scholarships.
There are two options for the Science After School program: Full Session or Multipass Drop-In Registration
Register to the Full Semester Session:
Guarantee your child’s spot in every Science After School program for Fall/Winter 2018 Semester. This includes full day (8am-6pm) programs on October 12th and November 9th.
MultiPass for Drop-in Registration to individual dates:
Need flexibility? Think of your multipass as a digital punch card. Multipasses also allow cancellation up to one week in advance with no penalty and last minute registration up to one day in advance. Multipasses are sold in sets of 5, 10, or 20 tickets, good for one year (this includes future semesters of Science After School). Multipasses cannot be shared by siblings, they must be purchased for each individual child. Drop-in registration is on a first-come first-served basis. Please keep in mind that space is limited and you should register early to save your child’s spot in a drop-in program.
Full Day registration on Oct 12th and Nov 9th requires two Multipass tickets.
We use a registration software called Amilia. First time users of the Amilia registration system should reference our program registration guide.
Payment Plan: Installment plans are available for Multipasses and Full Session Registration. The payment plan requires a 25% payment on purchase date and then divides the remaining balance into 5 future payments, processed on the 1st of the month.

If you register for the entire session and need to cancel specific dates, no refund is available. In unique cases where you need to cancel all future dates of the program, you may appeal for a pro-rated refund to the Education Director.
Frequently Asked Questions
Eugene Science Center does not currently have the infrastructure to offer transportation from your child’s school to the museum. We realize mid-day transportation is a barrier to many families. We can help facilitate carpools for families who opt-in to sharing the location of their child’s school and/or their home address with other registered families.
A MultiPass is required to gain access to drop-in registration to Science After School. MultiPasses are sold in sets of 5, 10 or 20 tickets, usable at any time for one year. Why don’t we allow single-day registration? We want to get to know our students! One of the major benefits of afterschool programs is the opportunity for kids to develop positive relationships with mentors, role models, and other students.
Science After School is not specifically for students in Eugene 4J District schools. We were inspired by the new Eugene 4J early release calendar to develop this program, and offer select Full Day options that coincide with Eugene 4J No-School-Days. However, the flexibility of the MultiPass allows students in other districts or homeschooled students to choose the dates that work for them. We recommend Springfield students use the 5 or 10-ticket MultiPass in order to register for programs on Springfield’s early release calendar. We will also be offering No-School-Day workshops on other dates separate from the Science After School Program. Look for other No-School-Day workshops here.
