Science Ambassador After School Program for 5th Graders

Science Ambassadors, now beginning its 11th year, is a mentorship program that pairs Beaverton area 5th graders with high school student mentors. 5th graders meet at the Primate Center twice a month (on Wednesday afternoons) throughout the school year to learn important science concepts through interactive (fun!) hands-on activities.

This year, Science Ambassador “mentees” will learn about cells, genetics, DNA, the immune system, germs, the brain, neuroscience, healthy lifestyles, diet, exercise, and biomedical research -- all under the direction of a high school mentor!
