Summer 2020

Classes & Camps Saturday Academy provides wide access to handson learning for diverse students in grades 2-12 in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM). Since 1983, as Oregon’s leading STEM nonprofit, our community experts have sparked curiosity and a love of learning in young people.

SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING MATH AND THE ARTS

Other programs include:

ASE Our Apprenticeships in Science & Engineering (ASE) program provides internships for high school students in professional environments. Internships are 8-week, full-time summer opportunities, mentored by practicing professionals in science and engineering throughout Oregon and southwest Washington. saturdayacademy.org/ase

SA2U

Saturday Academy to You (SA2U) brings Saturday Academy’s hands-on, in-depth classes taught by community experts to your neighborhood school. These on-site classes are available after-school and during late-opening days Monday through Friday. School administrators, teachers, after-school program coordinators or individual parents may schedule a class for their school. saturdayacademy.org/sa2u

GET Our Girls Engage Technology (GET) program provides positive computer programming and engineering experiences to young girls to increase their confidence and interest in technology. saturdayacademy.org/get

Welcome to another summer of curiositydriven learning! Has your child always dreamed of exploring space? Are they enthusiastic about animation? Are they curious about what a day in the life of an engineer or healthcare professional looks like? We have classes and camps that cover those topics and many, many more! I encourage you to look through our catalog with your children, talk about what interests them and sign up. What’s new this year other than 230 classes and camps? We heard your feedback, you are working parents, so we are also offering flexible after-camp pick-up at six of our Portland-Metro area sites (see page 12 for more details). Camp is more fun with a friend so we are also offering a Refer-A-Friend discount! Refer a new student to Saturday Academy and you’ll both receive a 20% rebate for one class or camp. As always, we are committed to making it possible for all interested students to participate in our programs regardless of financial circumstances. Financial aid is available for all our classes and camps. Just ask for it when you register - no forms, and no hassle (see page 11 for more details). This is the last time I’ll be inviting you to enjoy our summer programs, as I am retiring. We are in the midst of a search for a new director. What I will miss most when I leave? The answer is easy: I will miss seeing kids’ smiles at those “ah ha!” moments and the wide eyes of wonder when an amazing instructor introduces them to something new. There is simply nothing better than that. I will miss the talented, passionate people who work with us, give us advice, make connections in the community for us or fund us so we can inspire thousands of children each year. I am proud of the changes we’ve

made over my tenure. Our work toward equity and inclusion has been at the heart of much of our work. Experts guided staff in a year of intensive training on equity and inclusion that has set us on path of continuous improvement so we meet the needs of all the children in our community. A new technology system has eased registration for families for all of our programs and removed barriers to enrollment with financial aid. We can’t learn how to improve without data, so we now have a user-friendly database to help us analyze our performance. We have brought many experts into the organization for year-long fellowships to improve our work, and we’ve trained college interns about the value of K-12 STEM education in the hopes they may become future STEM educators. With this expertise, we initiated our Girls Engage Technology program that ensures girls have the confidence and competence to consider engineering as a career. Finally, I believe my role has been to hold the bar of education high. Over our 37 years, Saturday Academy has accomplished so much but there is much more to do to ensure that all children have opportunities to learn deeply, be challenged and see adults as guides to an education that leads to fulfilling careers. My call to action: do not settle for anything less! Jeri Janowsky, Ph. D. Executive Director, Saturday Academy
