The Bend Science Station is a learning laboratory which provides science education for all of Central Oregon, offering innovative curriculum to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, and inquiry-based training for their teachers. The Bend Science Station does more than provide high-quality, laboratory-based science education. We open minds and create possibilities, empowering young scientists to change lives—including their own. By engaging students with tools, technologies, and the freedom to ask and answer their own questions, they make discoveries not possible in the regular classroom. And they learn that science is a way to answer questions for the rest of their lives.
