Organizers coordinate activities with school districts, community colleges, agencies, businesses and other groups to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) opportunities for students. “We connect educators and students to emerging coastal and ocean issues, marine technology and cutting-edge research,” says project manager Tracy Crews. The STEM Hub is located at Oregon State’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport. See more at oregoncoaststem.oregonstate.edu/.
