The Sisters Science Club

We are a community based organization that strives to enhance science, math, and health in the schools and community through seven main areas.

CLICK ON ONE OF THE STARS on the image to the right & explore the club's activities.

Founded January 2011, the club is comprised of approximately 350 members - but there is no clubhouse, administration, or required annual dues. Rather, the club works by the community bringing volunteers and financial support to enhance the good ideas of the school's science teachers.

The club enjoys close support from Kiwanis, Rotary, The Roundhouse Foundation, The Sisters Garden Club, Energyneering Solutions, Saint Charles Medical Center, Cascades East Area Health Education Center (CEAHEC) and has been awarded grant support from the Oregon Community Foundation and the Meyer Memorial Trust.

Most importantly, numerous individuals see value in these programs and provide financial support through the Sisters School Foundation, a 501c3 organization. If you would like to join this effort, click here to reach our president!

The third of the 2017-18 Frontiers in Science Monthly Symposium series in Sisters is titled "Pachyderm Intrigue and Elephant Lessons," and will be presented on 28 NOvember by by Don Miller.

 

The images above came from the interesting brain of Salvador Dali, and bear little connection to the work of Don Miller who has been interested in how elephants communicate and will share some of his wonderful photographs with our community at our next Belfry talk. Like Dali however, elephants have been revered by humans for aeons.

We've put elephants in circuses, used them to log forests, to hunt tigers, and even to wage war ... and still, we know relatively little about them. Long lived, and undeniably intelligent, these splendid creatures seem to have an intellectual life that is still beyond our understanding.

Is the "painting elephant" real? See more here. Is it true that "elephants never forget?" Well, perhaps not, but they do have remarkable memories. Here is a remarkable story that proves it, and with a little searching, it's easy to find more stories like it.

Come to the Belfry, and you'll be fascinated!

Belfry doors open at 6 and Lecture at 7PM

General Admission: $5.00. Science Club Donors, Teachers and Students are free.
