Learn More About STEM Hub At Upcoming Meetings

Come help revisit and re-imagine STEM Education along the Oregon coast! The vitality of our coastal communities and our state depends on our collective willingness to work together to power student success in STEM. This April and May, the Oregon Coast STEM Hub will be holding a series of meetings along the coast designed to engage coastal community members in regional STEM Education efforts.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is a game-changer for our students, our communities, and our state. STEM learning focuses on the interconnected content areas of science, technology, engineering and math, and recognizes the importance of inquiry, investigation, and innovation to activate our economy and advance our communities. We need our future leaders — today’s learners — to have the hands-on, real world experiences that will help them develop the skills required to drive and thrive in a strong, information-age economy.

The Oregon Coast STEM Hub serves the entire Oregon coast, from Astoria to Brookings. It is one of eleven regional STEM Hubs in Oregon funded by the Oregon Department of Education. Headquartered at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, the Oregon Coast STEM Hub brings together families, K-12 educators, career technical education partners, higher education institutions, community-based organizations, and industry professionals to promote in-school and out-of-school STEM experiences that ignite students’ passions and interests.

Join us! Community Meetings are scheduled from 5:00-7:30pm, with a pizza and salad dinner included. Please choose the location and date best for you and RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/OCSH-Meeting
