Introduction to Oregon Connections

Have students ever asked you why they need to know something? Do you wish you had more tools and resources to help students connect what they are learning in school to potential future careers? Do you wish you could organize field trips and guest speakers, but don't have the time and resources to organize these?


You have free access to an amazing career-education tool called Oregon Connections through the Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub. To get started, create an account at the Oregon Connections Website. From there, contact us at dcoregonconnections@gmail.com to request your free upgrade to a platinum account to access the full website.
