Two new STEM hubs come online

The state recently funded two new Regional STEM Hubs, bringing the total statewide to 13. These Hubs bring together schools, nonprofits, businesses, and local leaders to drive hands-on learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. The new Hubs are:

  • Mid-Valley Mid-Coast STEM-CTE, serving Benton, Linn and parts of Lincoln County, received $47,382. It is a partnership among Lane Benton Community College and Oregon State University, the Linn Benton Lincoln Educational Service District, K-12 school, and industry and community partners. The Hub aims to provide a unified, coordinated approach to meeting workforce needs and addressing social and economic inequities in the region.
  • Northwest STEM Hub, serving Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook counties, received $49,875. Housed at the Northwest Regional Education Service District (ESD), the mission of the Northwest STEM Hub is to provide local students the opportunity to develop real-world skills linked to high-wage and high-demand careers and postsecondary education and training.
