Event description

Description

Are you excited to learn more about the Next Generation Science Standards and implement them with your students and in your programs? JOIN THE OREGON COAST SCIENCE PROJECT!

The Oregon Coast Science Project is part of Oregon Science Project (OSP), an equity-focused, statewide professional learning network designed to build regional science education leadership to improve student access to science in rural and underserved populations. With a focus on the historically underserved rural and semi-rural areas of Oregon, the OSP network seeks to connect educators over long distances in new ways.

Join our teacher collaborative as we delve into the NGSS and expand 3-dimensional learning on the coast. Together we will study NGSS, learn how to transform classrooms to better engage and serve our students, and build a network of coastal science education leaders.

Who is eligible?
This opportunity is available to educators in the Oregon Coast STEM Hub, including any K-12 teacher in the region, as well as interested science informal educators who work with K-12 teachers and students.
