|Saturday Academy (SA) "gives kids learning experiences that get them excited about school, help them explore potential careers, discover their intellectual possibilities, and teach them to be lifelong learners." Targeting the youth and profesionals of the Portland metro area (Oregon and southwest Washington state), SA "inspires young people to explore their world through hands-on learning with community experts and professionals." Classes and workshops for students in grades 4-12 address dozens of math topics. Summer Math Academies prepare secondary level students for algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, and geometry. SA matches students in grades 9-11 with local scientists and engineers for eight-week apprenticeships in science and engineering. SA's Brain Games target young professionals "interested in giving back to their community" while competing as teams of five in a series of academic or intellectual challenges, categories of which include math, engineering & robotics, and physics.|
