Beyond the Classroom
Climb a tree at the H.J. Andrews Forest. Test your sea sense at the Hatfield Marine Science Center’s Visitor Center. Take an online class through E-campus. Outside the classroom, OSU provides many ways to learn:
- EH@Home. Mold, pesticides, mercury, lead — some health threats live at home. OSU’s Environmental Health Sciences Center offers workshops and information to help Oregonians reduce risks.
- See the wave. Thousands of school kids and families visit the Hinsdale Wave Lab annually to see wave experiments in action.
- SMILE for science. The SMILE program, a partnership between OSU and more than 35 Oregon public schools, brings more than 700 students to the university every year.
- Learn online. From the comfort of home or a favorite wi-fi spot, students can pursue more than 20 undergraduate and graduate degree programs online through OSU’s Extended Campus.
- The Masters. More than 2 million Oregonians receive information and education each year from volunteers trained in OSU Extension Service programs such as Oregon Master Naturalist, Master Gardener and Master Woodland Managers.
- Hidden forest. At the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, students and teachers can safely explore a forest canopy, sample stream life and get access to real scientific data.
