        Deliver inquiry-based integrated science/math curricula
        Deepen content of science and math
        Make connections to career fields
        Integrate technology into their teaching
        Facilitate cooperative or collaborative classes and activities
        And to provide culturally-relevant, equity promoting teaching techniques

    SMILE Club teachers develop instructional strategies in science and math attuned to helping students succeed.

    Discovery Days is a free outreach program sponsored by the Colleges of Science and Engineering. This highly popular event was developed to allow students to explore more of the world around them by engaging their minds in interactive exhibits. Students are able to participate in a number of hands-on activities including examining live specimens and making polymers. Discovery Days encourages students to develop their own questions and ideas regarding the sciences while creating a deeper interest to learn more. Because many displays are interactive and include live animal exhibits, we ask that children be supervised at all times, including during breaks to the restroom.

  • Music Between Two World Wars - Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra
    Performance
    Austin Auditorium
    Wed, 02/25/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

    Of the three works on our program, one explicitly refers to war, one powerfully evokes the anxiety and violence of war, and one responds to violence by creating a kind of musical safe haven. 

    Benjamin Britten wrote the Sinfonia da Requiem (1945)on commission from the Japanese government, but the piece, inspired no doubt by Britten’s pacifism, was rejected by the Chrysanthemum throne. The movements, titled Lacrymosa, Dies Irae, and Requiem Aeternam, combine references to the Latin Requiem Mass with dramatic evocations of war in ways similar to Britten’s later masterpiece War Requiem. Be prepared for the thunderous chord at the beginning.

    Building, Managing, and Operating a Trifecta of Country Music Festivals - Anne Hankins

    Anne will be delivering a talk that will provide the audience with an insider's view of the many aspects of the festival business. 

    Topics that she will be covering are:
    How it all began
    Buying talent in house
    Politics - mass gathering ordinances
    Infrastructure - Operations, volunteers, vendors
    Sponsorship platform - relationships, understanding partner needs
    Community participation and give backs
    Creating a winning footprint - consolidating production and artist routing 

    For 20 years, Anne Hankins worked in accounting in one position or another, from beginning accountant to controller of a multi-store division, and raised four children – three girls and a boy, now ages 17-23. Her favorite saying is “Living the dream,” the dream being not what you do in your life, but how you live it. Anne is definitely living the dream now as president of the three companies that own some of the largest country music festivals on the west coast: The Bi Mart Country Music Festival (now in its 8th year), the Cape Blanco Country Music Festival (now in its 2nd year), and launching in 2015, the Mountain Home Country Music Festival.
