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

Working from an impressive background in science and engineering, he will be speaking about how eutrophication (the process whereby lake ecosystems are enriched through the addition of chemical nutrients through run-off from human activities as well as climate change) degrades aquatic health. Dr. Forrest is a principal researcher in this area, and will help us understand how this process can fundamentally change the ecosystems of our lakes and reservoirs and have potentially greater implications for watersheds on both regional and global scales.
Belfry doors open at 6 and Lecture at 7PM
General Admission: $5.00 Science Club Donors, Teachers and Students are free.
With some wonderful prizes, the contest invites students to find art in science, and science in art. Click here to watch a video of last year's Top Ten. The contest is now closed. Watch for the results!
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!
Design, Create, and Compete is back! The DCC competition is once again challenging Sisters School District students to accurate loft a tennis ball through and to a target in the gym ... and it's amazing how much math and physics come to bear on such a task. Click here to learn more about this competition ... and toward the bottom of the linked page you'll find both detailed rules and an entry form.
This competition is one part of the spectacular Sisters Science Fair that the whole community will enjoy on March 18th. We hope to see you there ... but if you can't attend, watch this page for pictures & description of the event.
Could Solar Power Really Make A Difference?
As a national project, this might seem possible ... but only if our national electrical distribution system is modernized. Here are the plans.
As an individual homeowner, switching to solar now seems possible as well. Tesla, for example, is now rolling out complete systems that look like this:
