COOS BAY, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College invites 3rd to 6th grade students to join us for “STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) FOR KIDS” on Tuesday, February 6, 2024. This science-immersion event will be from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the College’s health and science building, Umpqua Hall, on the Coos Campus, 1988 Newmark Ave., Coos Bay.

Students will engage with professors in hands-on activities in physics and engineering, chemistry, geology, art, and more. This includes working alongside the College’s S.P.E.A.R. (which stands for STEAM Pathways Experimental & Academic Research) student researchers, who are involved in various STEAM projects.

There will also be an opportunity to experience a show in our new Discovery Dome Planetarium. This digital theater space immerses students in a presentation 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 them grow ability in out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration.

Cost is $25 per person and limited to 15 spots. Scholarships are available. For more information on this and future events, registration, and scholarships contact Krystal Hopper Meyers, STEAM Pathways Assistant, at 541-888-7416, or krystal.hopper@socc.edu.
