STEAM Week celebration replaced STEAM Extravaganza

Due to COVID-19 and resulting closures, the May 16 STEAM Extravaganza was cancelled. Instead, the Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub celebrated STEAM Week May 9-17 with STEAM Hubs across the state. Visit our STEAM Thinking at Home page for ways students can experience at-home activities!

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.

We have a STEAM identity in Douglas County, and we're looking to expand it.
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.”
