2017-2018 STEAM Workgroup Series

Attention STEAM educators!



The Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub will be partnering up with the ESD this year to offer a brand new countywide STEAM workgroup. As opposed to our normal workgroups which are led by one expert in the field, this will be a PLC style group with every member being the expert.


This will be a much smaller group than normal (8-13 members, hopefully 1 per district), so sign up quickly if you're interested. Here are some additional details:


  • We will meet about once a month, on Thursdays, from 4:15 - 5:45 (tentatively)
  • Each session will be led by a different member, where you'll get to share your expertise in an area of STEAM education with the group (ESD coach will help plan & facilitate if needed)
  • School administration will be aware of the group and asked to provide some PD time at the end of the year for you to share back your takeaways
  • PDUs & snacks will be provided

This workgroup is designed for local leaders in STEAM education who would like to share, learn, and promote what they and others are doing around the county.

Tentative meeting dates:

Thursday October 26, 2017

Thursday November 16, 2017

Thursday December 14, 2017
