About Science Squad
Science Squad is an event where activity leads work with the kids to build STEM oriented projects.  At these events, the kids have an opportunity to learn basics about science behind real-world things through hands-on activities.  Depending on the length of the event, the kids may even build a project of their own and take it home.  The activities range from problem solving scenarios to designing and building projects.   You can find pictures of our previous events at http://www.facebook.com/cascadescience.

 

The Cascades Science Center Foundation (CSCF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to sparking kids’ imaginations and providing a venue for the whole family to discover and explore science.  We will provide a physical and virtual venue where kids can engage in scientific query. Our goal is to foster science literacy in young people so they are able to compete in a 21st Century global economy.
