WHY: Saturday Academy has served more than 145,000 children across the Portland metro area since its founding in 1983. Its goal is to nourish the natural curiosity, innovation, and wonder in children. Saturday Academy connects kids with technology and professionals in their fields, otherwise unavailable to them. Students explore topics with hands-on activities, yet without tests or homework. The result is a pipeline of young people interested in advanced careers critical to our state's future economy.
