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.

Our third Frontiers in Science Monthly Symposium in Sisters is "Biomimicry: Sustainable innovation Inspired by Nature" ... with Karen Allen, MS, CPB, who is a teacher at Arizona State University, and a restoration ecologist.

Allen will be speaking about biomimicry, and how the evolutionary genius contained in the natural world can be incorporated into sustainable solutions to the environmental problems we currently face. You can look at some of the work she's done by clicking on the image below. The field of biomimicry integrates science, technology, engineering, and biology, and her talk should prove to be both interesting and informative.

Belfry doors open at 6 and Lecture at 7PM

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

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!

How do cities fit into nature? This video will prepare you for our November Frontiers In Science lecture ... one that is all about biomimicry. We can hardly wait!

Can we reverse climate change?

Oak Ridge National Laboratory has announced the discovery of a method to convert CO2 directly into ethanol using a unique nano-spike catalyst system that can be operated at room temperature and very low power inputs. Click here to learn more.
