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.

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.
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. Students in other districts or homeschooled students may choose the dates that work for them.
