Inspiring Walla Walla Valley teachers and students to explore science.
The Science Outreach program at Whitman College began in the fall of 2009 with a four year grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Whitman continues to support this program which currently consists of four main components.
Advance Studies Enrichment Program (ASE)
Whitman science and math students are offering AP study sessions in the Hall of Science atrium on the Whitman campus for Walla Walla Valley AP students. Each Monday and Wednesday from 7-8:30 in the Science Hall Atrium and Room 146 there will be Whitman students available to discuss topics, go over problem sets, dig deeper into the subjects, and answer questions. The opportunity is open to all students enrolled in AP Science and Math classes in Walla Walla Valley Schools, including AP Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science and AP Calculus. We will provide study snacks, prizes for attendance, and a great study environment. This program is funded by a generous grant from Pacific Power.
The Science Fair is held each spring on the Whitman campus. We are inviting any student in grades 6-9 to participate. Click here for more information Science Fair Info.
We offer classroom programs which support the curriculum of the Walla Walla Valley schools.
Summer Institute for Teachers
Each summer we offer a summer institute for teachers where we focus on a specific topic. Included in the institute are field trips, lab experiments and time to collaborate with other teachers. This opportunity is open to all Walla Walla Valley Middle and High School teachers. For more information click here Summer Institute.
