BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Bend Science Station plans to relocate to the OSU-Cascades campus in southwest Bend.

The nonprofit founded in 2002 offers laboratory-based science education for students and teacher training for local educators.

Development director Lisa Bermudez tells The Bulletin newspaper (https://is.gd/FmeUXE ) that a planned 3,750-square-foot building will contain two science labs, a multipurpose room and office space.

Construction is expected start this fall and the building should be ready for students by September 2017.

Bermudez says the move will allow the science station to further solidify its relationship with OSU-Cascades.

Undergraduate and graduate-level science education students from the university have participated in the science station’s teacher education programs, and the science station will be looking for ways to involve university students and faculty in its programs for kids.
