Launched in 2016, the Oregon Science Project continues to expand teacher leadership and NGSS professional development opportunities throughout the rural and semirural regions of Oregon via the Learning Facilitator Pathway and Regional Teacher Collaboratives.
The Learning Facilitator Pathway prepares K-12 educators with the experiences, curriculum, community, and facilitation tools needed to lead NGSS professional learning for other adults. It is designed for educators who are seeking new leadership roles in science education where they can contribute to and advocate for science education at the local and state level.
The Oregon Science Project also runs Regional Teacher Collaboratives to increase interdistrict communication and collaboration between administrators and amongst educators. These collaboratives are an opportunity for communities to work through specific problems of practice or identify previously overlooked mechanisms for change.
This summer we are excited to announce the launch the of the two newest Oregon Science Project Sites: The Northwest Oregon Science Project and The Northeast Oregon Science Project. These two newest sites are focused on science in elementary as an equity lever for classrooms throughout the their regions.
