"Saturday Academy classes provide an excellent opportunity to kids in schools that they might not otherwise have."

Steve Delach, instructor, Electrical Engineer (Retired), Intel Corporation

OHSU has had a long term partnership with Saturday Academy in a variety of ways including sponsorship, board membership, mentorship, instruction, and volunteerism.  Saturday Academy allows students (grades 2-12) to explore a multitude of topics from science, engineering and technology to humanities and the arts through classes and camps and internships. One such program is Saturday Academy’s Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering Program (ASE) that matches high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors throughout Oregon and SW Washington with scientists and engineers for 8-week internships in a professional scientific or engineering environment. OHSU has fully participated with Saturday Academy’s ASE, classes, and camps, and has served nearly 500 students in the last two years. We are fortunate to be able to join forces with Saturday Academy in many ways and provide educational supports for kids.
