Lane STEM is one of the thirteen Oregon STEM Hubs, working with all 16 school districts in Lane County. We convene the STEM Leadership and Operations teams, facilitate professional development for teachers, and implement programming for students.
Elevate Lane County is a county-wide program connecting students to careers. We host career expos/job fairs, and coordinate industry tours, job shadows, and 6-week internships for high school students. We organize industry panels and guest speakers for teachers.
In partnership with the Beyond High School Network and others, Connected Lane County strives to support local high school counselors, college/career and other guidance staff with yearly professional development workshops.
In collaboration with Badgr, open source badges will be available to Lane County students to capture their career exploration. Badge pathways that students complete will lead to guaranteed job interviews with local companies.
In partnership with the Technology Association of Oregon, the Regional Advisory sets the course for county-wide K-12 computer science curriculum. Additionally, it approves technology-based Career and Tech Ed curriculum.
