The Sisters Science Club

We are a community based organization that strives to enhance science, math, and health in the schools and community through seven main areas.

CLICK ON ONE OF THE STARS on the image to the right & explore the club's activities.

Founded January 2011, the club is comprised of approximately 350 members - but there is no clubhouse, administration, or required annual dues. Rather, the club works by the community bringing volunteers and financial support to enhance the good ideas of the school's science teachers.

The club enjoys close support from Kiwanis, Rotary, The Roundhouse Foundation, The Sisters Garden Club, Energyneering Solutions, Saint Charles Medical Center, Cascades East Area Health Education Center (CEAHEC) and has been awarded grant support from the Oregon Community Foundation and the Meyer Memorial Trust.

Most importantly, numerous individuals see value in these programs and provide financial support through the Sisters School Foundation, a 501c3 organization. If you would like to join this effort, click here to reach our president!

Our 2017 science fair was simply terrific! Learn more about the fair by clicking on the star at the lower right of our logo! Click the image above for more pictures from the fair!

The sixth presentation of the 2017-18 Frontiers in Science Monthly Symposium series in Sisters is titled "Undamming the Elwha: A River Revived," and is presented by Dr. Jerry Freilich, Ph.D, on Tuesday, March 27th.

Below, find the third video in p>Advanced LIGO Documentary Project's eight-part series on LIGO's historic discovery of gravitational waves and the birth of the new age of gravitational wave astronomy. In August 2017, LIGO and its Italian partner, VIRGO, made a discovery as important as its historic first detection of gravitational waves in 2015. They detected gravitational waves from two colliding neutron stars, which ejected a spectacular gamma ray burst that was seen by seven space-based telescopes and dozens of astronomical observatories on earth. It was the long dreamed-of marriage of gravitational wave astronomy with conventional astronomy, and the results were spectacular.

Dr. Price, a physicist specializing in elementary particles, holds degrees in physics from Pomona College (B.A.) and Harvard Uni-
versity (M.A. and Ph.D.). Now retired from the Argonne National Laboratory, he also worked at Columbia University and the U.S. Department of Energy. Dr. Price’s research has included experiments providing early insight into the structure of neutrons and protons; into properties of quarks; evidence for neutrino oscillations and neutrino mass; and the international effort culminating in discovery of the Higgs Boson particle.

The direct observation of gravitational waves is indeed the discovery of the century because it will radically expand the reach of astronomy. Dr. Price will help us understand why and what this
means for future study of the cosmos.

On Tuesday, March 27, you will wander out o The Belfry into the starry night marvel ing at what you now understand about Gravitational waves, colliding black holes and Albert Einstein’s century-old predictions about the universe.

Come to the Belfry, and you'll be fascinated there too! Belfry doors open at 6 and Lecture at 7PM

General Admission: $5.00. Science Club Donors, Teachers and Students are free.

And when the current administration has proposed a 72% cut in renewable energy research, here is a timely reminder about the importance of science in our lives:
