-about us

OC Science is a student-run, non-profit organization working to inspire and spread interest in science and engineering among youth in Orange County.

  • Science Fun Nights

    Join us for fun, hands-on activities at our science fun nights held on the second Friday of each month. With many engineering and other make and take events, children of all ages can come and join in. To learn more about this event, please click here.

    Sign up for our workshops.

  • Santiago Science and Engineering Night

    OC Science will be hosting their second Science and Engineering Night at Santiago Elementary School. At this event, students and their families will learn the thought process behind scientific inquiry and how to design their very own science fair project. Afterwards, all the students will partake in fun, interactive engineering activities. For more information on the event, please click here. This event is open only to Santiago Elementary School students.

  • School Chapters

    Starting an OC Science school chapter is a great opportunity for volunteers to spread OC Science's desire to spread STEM. To develop a school chapter, please fill out this form. To see all current school chapters, click here.

IRVINE, California—October 13, 2014

OC Science was founded and launched by a group of middle and high school students mid-October. A number of these “founding members” had been previously given the opportunity to take part in science research for events such as school and district science fairs, the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair (OCSEF), and the national Broadcom MASTERS. These students had benefited greatly from their experiences in countless ways—they applied the scientific method to real life problems, and analyzed complicated data samples in order to reach a conclusion, just to name a few. The benefits were not only limited to academics, however. Students explored various speaking and display techniques in order to confidently and effectively present their findings. Furthermore, in participating in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) events, students found themselves surrounded by likeminded young individuals who also strived to learn more, know more, and do more, inspiring them to work harder and go deeper into the realms of science and other subjects.

OC Science’s members wish to provide these highly beneficial opportunities to a more widespread audience, especially students in elementary and middle school, in hopes that more and more of our youth will be exposed to the sciences and research opportunities at an early age, and as a result, become motivated to pursue STEAMrelated career paths in the future. OC Science plans to contact school districts across Orange County in order to increase access to these STEAM opportunities. OC Science, along with countless other organizations and leading individuals in today’s society, strongly believes that STEAM is essential to our nation’s future successes, and strives to promote it through events and activities geared towards our youth.

Math for Service, Inc. has provided OC Science with a grant to support them in their mission “to inspire and spread interest in science and engineering among youth in Orange County.”
