COOS BAY, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College invites 7th to 12th grade students to join us for an Earth Day themed “STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) for TEENS” on Saturday, April 6, 2024. This science-immersion event will be from 1:00 – 5:00 pm in the College’s health and science building, Umpqua Hall, room 184, on the Coos Campus, 1988 Newmark Ave., Coos Bay.

Students will engage with professors in Earth Day themed hands-on activities in Physics & Engineering, Chemistry, Geology, Biology, Art, and more. This includes working alongside the College’s SPEAR Student Researchers, who are involved in many STEAM projects. There will also be an opportunity to experience a show in the new Discovery Dome Planetarium on hurricanes and tornadoes called Force Five. This digital theater space immerses students in a show that takes them on an adventure.

STEAM education projects help students visualize career pathways in science, technology, engineering, and math. The “A” adds in the arts, such as humanities, dance, drama, visual arts, and design. When people learn in all these areas together, they gain soft skills that can help grow their ability in out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration.

There is a $25 registration fee paid through Community Education. Please email krystal.hopper@socc.edu to register today. Spots are limited to 15. Scholarships are available.

For more information on this event, registration, and scholarships contact Krystal Hopper Meyers, STEAM Pathways Assistant, at 541-888-7416, or krystal.hopper@socc.edu.
