Science Saturday

Science Saturday (formerly BLAST off with ATHENAS) is a program for middle schoolers at Kenyon College where students learn about science together and heighten their experience near and around science.

There are two programs per year, each with a different theme that includes fun, hands-on activities that encourage exploration and collaboration not typically available to middle school students. This is a free program that includes lunch at the Kenyon dining hall. The program is directed by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic Kenyon faculty and students who aim to show that science is fun and exciting. Descriptions and registration information for our upcoming programs are posted below.

We look forward to seeing you at the next fall session in 2024!


¡Hola! is a program for community members of all ages, developed and facilitated by dedicated, multilingual Kenyon students. This program provides one-on-one tutoring sessions and mentorship twice a week with Latino children and adult learners from Knox County at the Wright Center.
