Welcome to the Oregon Science Project

The Oregon Science Project is an equity-focused, statewide professional learning network designed to build regional science education leadership throughout the state. The Oregon Department of Education awarded Oregon Math and Science Partnership funds to Eastern Oregon University to launch the first 2 years of the Oregon Science Project from 2016-2018.

Dozens of professional learning facilitators are now leading regional teacher professional development programs around the Next Generation Science Standards. With a focus on the historically underserved rural and semi-rural areas of Oregon, this professional learning network seeks to connect educators over long distances in new ways.

Eastern Oregon University, GO STEM Hub, the Oregon Science Teachers Association, and the Oregon Coast STEM Hub are leading this effort in partnership with multiple Oregon STEM hubs.

Over 200 Educators From All Over Oregon
