A Sept. 14, 2015, post on Science In Portland listed various resources area parents could tap into to help their public-, private- or homeschooled children explore topics in science and enhance their learning.
A brain fair and brown bag series offer more resources parents can turn to, to enhance their children’s education in scientific topics. Freeimages.com
Since that posting, a couple more resources have come to our attention, so here they are:
• Oregon Health and Science University’s Brain Institute presents the Brain Fair educational event each year in spring at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and museum admission is not required to attend it. Check out the Brain Fair’s website for more information.
• The U.S. Geological Survey’s Oregon Water Science Center offers a seminar series that may be good for parents and their teens, especially in helping the latter group to learn about possible career fields. Brown bag talks are held from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays at the center, 2130 S.W. Fifth Ave. Check out upcoming topics on the series’ schedule online.
