STEM Hub Collaboratories are cross-sectional work groups with a targeted focus on the three strategic areas of Empowered Educators, Community Collaboration and Career Connected Learning. Each collaboratory is intended to be of direct value to those involved, while also guiding the Hub in its work. Eventually there will also be an executive team thinking big-picture across all three collaboratories.
Activities across all collaboratories include:
Increasing youth awareness to career connected learning that provide both awareness and exploration as well as preparation and training opportunities.
Supporting the creation of a Gorge-wide CTE-STEM Advisory Committee that spans secondary and post-secondary education.
Collaborating as a regional Community of Practice around STEM teaching and learning inside and outside of classrooms.
Sharing local resources, knowledge, and opportunities around STEM education and learning.
Building clear points of contact for industry, educators, and career learners.
Sharing best practices around engaging youth and families in the region.
Commitments: At least one year; 90 minute gatherings, approximately quarterly.
