programming languages which one should you choose? We offer a wide variety of computer programming classes. Choosing the right one for you depends on your interests and goals.

follow your curiosity! C

• developed in 1972 for implementing the UNIX operating system • used in operating systems like Windows, UNIX and Linux • if your goal is to understand the evolution of software programming languages, C is a great place to start

C++

• developed in 1979 as an extention of C - it’s the next step in programming languages • used for video game engines and web servers • more efficient and flexible than C

C#

• newer programming language developed at Microsoft as a step above C++ • used by indie game developers and is the primary language used in Unity 3D • you can do a lot with just a little bit of code in comparison to C and C++

GameMaker • used by GameMaker: Studio

• allows you to make more powerful games than the drag-and-drop interface • you create code and it is executed directly by this interpreted programming language

JavaTM

• developed in 1995 by Sun Microsystems and can run on Windows, OXS and Linux • used on web servers, Andriod phones and is the language of Minecraft • Java and C# are similar in terms of ease of use

Perl

• developed in 1987 as a general purpose Unix scripting language • for report processing, system administration, finance and network programming • considered “the duct tape that holds the internet together.”

Python

• released in 1991and emphasizes code readability • used on web servers and by mathematicians and scientists to process data • highly efficient and flexible interpreted programming language

activity page family fun make your own soap

experiment with different scents, colors and additives to create your very own custom bar of soap

You’ll need • • • • • • •

1 or more pounds of basic, uncolored, unscented bar soap Food processor or cheese grater Pot Double boiler Water or milk Soap molds or muffin tins 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon os assorted additives per pound of soap

Experiment with additives like • • • •

What to do • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Salt, sugar or oatmeal as an exfoliant Cinnamon or other fragrant spices Honey Follow your curiosity and create your own specialty soap

Use a food processor or cheese grater to finely shred the bar(s) of soap for the “base.” Put about half of the shredded soap in a pot, using a double boiler works best. Add just enough water or milk to cover the soap. Note that milk burns easier, but if you do it right it will make a smoother soap. Place the pot on low heat and as the soap melts add more of the shredded base soap. Stir well, soap can easily begin to burn. As the water or milk evaporates, add a little more to the mixture. Once the soap has melted, add any scents or additives. Pour the soap into molds. They don’t need to be fancy molds, even cupcake tins work fine. Tap the bottom of the mold on a counter to get rid of any air pockets. Cover the mold with a towel overnight. Put the mold in the freezer for a few hours the next day. Remove the soap from the mold and enjoy!

ASE Program Overview Founded in 1990, the Apprenticeships in Science & Engineering (ASE) program was designed to address a growing concern over the quantity, quality and cultural/gender diversity of our nation’s future technical and scientific workforce. ASE has grown from a pilot program of six student interns to more than 150 interns during summer 2016. For over 27 years, the program has provided more than 3,800 students with handson, project-based, eight-week internships with practicing professionals in science and engineering. These students are a part of a pool of more than 500 applicants from throughout Oregon and SW Washington.

ASE engages high school students in STEM fields by providing them with A competitive application process A comprehensive orientation and training program A mentor Real-world internship experience A tangible career path

ASE internships are • • • •

featured classes We are thrilled to offer several new classes on tracking and foraging this summer, including: Wildlife Biology & Tracking Wild Plants & Animals: Foraging & Tracking Wolf Tracks Wolverine Tracking Project Our Classes & Camps Coordinator, Rachel Pecore-Valdez is an experienced wildlife tracker. In 2014, by foot and bicycle she retraced the dispersal route of a GPS-collared wolf, Wolf OR-7, from NE Oregon into California for a documentary film. Excerpt from http://or7expedition.org/human-human-coexistence

By Rachael Pecore-Valdez, Saturday Academy Classes & Camps Coordinator “Since human tolerance has been and remains the primary limiting factor for wolf survival, building tolerance for this species will require acceptance of the Plan’s approach to addressing wolf conservation and human conflict.” – Oregon Wolf Management Plan In June of 2014, 6 humans completed a nearly 1,200-mile trek from Northeast Oregon into Northern California to retrace the life of a radio-collared wolf, from birth to where he now lives with his mate and pups in the Rogue-Siskiyou National forest. As one of these six humans, my drive was to learn about the life and science of a modern wolf, Wolf OR-7, beyond the historical stereotypes, hearsay, and folktales. However, through the ups and downs of remote roads and trails, the Wolf OR-7 Expedition for me became less a journey to learn about Wolf OR-7, and more a question about how humans work with conflict. Human-wolf conflict management has changed dramatically. From the 1600’s to mid-1900, the dominant European-American conflict resolution standard was a government funded mandate to kill all wolves. By 1973, with wolves, bald eagles, grizzly bears and thousands of other species reduced to a fraction of their original range, the US Endangered Species Act charged US Fish and Wildlife with creating a different way to balance humans and wildlife interests. In 2002-2005, Oregonians began a process of town hall meetings and stakeholder input to draft an Oregon Wolf Management Plan that carefully outlined a legal process for addressing conflicts. I’m a seasoned conflict avoider, but the controversy surrounding wolves and the conflicts that surfaced within the team during the expedition were unavoidable. As we retraced the approximate, 2011 dispersal route of the 7th wolf to be radio-collared in Oregon (Wolf OR-7), we interviewed stakeholders and people we met along the way who now find themselves in wolf country. Humans are the greatest threat to wolf recovery. Whether by human activities such as road traffic, urban development, or poaching, the future of wolves in the U.S. hinges on social tolerance between humans. Human-wolf coexistence depends on human-human coexistence. I believe the future of humans and wildlife species on the planet will depend on our ability as humans to address deep-rooted conflicts, build bridges across entrenched party lines, and an ongoing effort to provide opportunities for dialogue.
