Portland Junior Scientists is an after school science program for underprivileged students that was started and led by local high school students. We currently run a program at Portland After School Tennis and Education (PAST&E) which we have led for one year. We also organized and taught summer camp for the Beaverton Police Activities League for 70 kids in July 2012. We are currently in contact with multiple local Title 1 schools that are interested in hosting our program for their students because many schools do not have the budget to provide adequate hands-on science for their students. We have enough volunteers to branch out and meet the need in our community , but we currently lack sufficient funds. Please support us by donating and help us reach out to students in need.
