STEM Week Oregon, May 8th – May 16th, 2021

Welcome to 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!

STEM Week Oregon 2021: Design, Invent, Inspire!

Celebrate ​STEAM and community learning with all Oregonians! Daily prize winners will be drawn for registrations, and featured STE(A)M Activities will be highlighted on STEMOregon.org.

Oregon STEM hubs have partnered with national leader ReMake Learning Days Across America to supercharge STEM Week Oregon 2021! ReMake Learning Days brings national partners such as Common Sense Media, PBS Kids, Noggin, Learning Heroes and 16 regions together to create the world’s largest hands-on learning festival for youth and families across America. The festival celebrates in and out-of-school educators for the work they do with students pre-K through 12th grade. 

We are launching the 7th annual STEM Week Oregon early this year with our first ever Launch Event! During this one hour virtual event participants will be introduced to innovative and exciting ways to remake and reimagine learning through STEM. Participants will hear from Talent City Maker’s program director, Allison French, and have the opportunity to participate in small group conversations focused around this year’s STEM Week.

“We are excited to launch STEM week early this year and introduce our first minigrants that are available to STEM Week hosts of public events.  Minigrants are made possible through our new role as a regional event host- ReMake Learning Days Oregon!”  

We are excited to announce minigrants up to $250 for event hosts to help reach underserved youth and families.
