PARTNERS, "PLUG IN" TO STEM ACTIVITIES HAPPENING IN YOUR AREA.
School closures and other emerging news related to COVID-19 has disrupted many student events planned for this spring. However, there are still virtual opportunities available for STEM professionals to share their expertise and careers with youth! For example:
Oregon Sea Grant normally offers hands-on day-long career day events at Hatfield Marine Science Center to help high school students learn about marine science careers. This Spring, OSG is planning at least one Virtual Career Day to engage students with presentations online. If you are interested in sharing your marine science career with youth this spring, contact Tracy Crews at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Oregon Connections is a resource for connecting classrooms and students to career inspiration and experts in nearly every imaginable field. Developed by the STEM Oregon Hub network and powered by Nepris, Oregon classrooms have been connecting with professionals locally and nationwide since 2015, and now, it is a great way for students to continue learning from home! Students can hear directly from experts how their learning applies in the real world through live, virtual sessions, as well as access 9,000+ videos of past sessions, anytime, anywhere. Visit https://oregonconnections.nepris.com/ and click on the "Professionals" tab to learn more.
If there is no specific information about an upcoming event, contact the coordinator to get on their mailing list so that you'll be notified during active volunteer recruitment.
NOTE: Many spring events in this list have been or will be cancelled due to COVID-19 rules.
