STEM Week Oregon, May 8th –16th, 2021
It’s time to celebrate the 7th annual STEM Week Oregon, a state-wide movement to raise awareness, celebrate and engage in activities involving Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. This year, we are thrilled to partner with ReMake Learning Days Across America for the first time!
We are looking for people to lead STEAM activities. Mini grants are available for public events.
A daily schedule of STE(A)M Week activities will be posted here soon.
Here’s a look at previous STEAM Extravanzas connected to STEM Week!

What is the STEAM Extravaganza?
It’s a gathering to showcase activities and connections Douglas County folks are making in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, with artful innovation tying it all together. It will be a family-fun day for all ages, highlighting efforts and projects of schools, clubs, nonprofit groups, businesses and other organizations. We will provide tours of UCC sites involved in STEAM education, and information on numerous UCC STEAM-related courses that lead directly to dynamic jobs.
Part of the Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub’s mission is to build on an existing STEAM foundation that can revitalize our community, educationally as well as economically. “Not everybody realizes that we have a STEAM identity in Douglas County, and we’re looking to expand it,” said STEAM Hub Project champion Grace Goodson. “There is a lot of cool stuff going on; we want to make sure everybody knows it.”
