The Homeroom Experience
OMSI educators will support your student’s distance learning needs while providing STEM-based enrichment activities and social development opportunities in stable small grade-based groups. Students’ health and safety will be prioritized in a structured and physically distanced environment.
After ensuring successful completion of school-based digital coursework and assignments, OMSI educators will inspire and captivate students with fun science labs, demonstrations, experiments, and design challenges that ignite imaginations and create confident problem solvers.
Thanks to the generous support of corporate sponsors and individual donors, our goal is to offer discounts of 50% to 90% for up to two-thirds of OMSI Homeroom students. We are hopeful this will help serve families who have limited options during this time.
OMSI has provided Emergency Childcare and summer camps since March, when COVID-19 shut down schools. Our educators are experienced classroom teachers and informal education professionals who bring science to life while connecting students to the future of STEAM opportunities.
Health and Safety
To help protect the community, staff and students ages five (5) and older are required to wear a face covering. OMSI staff follows safety protocols established by the Oregon Health Authority, including a daily health screening, cleaning, social distancing, and stable small groups of 10.
