Welcome to the Oak Ridge Science Academy!
The Oak Ridge Science Academy is a research-based, hands-on learning experience for middle school students focusing on climate, global warming and energy. During this week-long academy, students will have opportunities to build and research wind turbines, solar cars and make biofuels. Students will also tour Oak Ridge National Laboratory's research facilities and learn from scientists who are exploring the impacts and interactions of climate, global warming and energy.
