Science & Engineering in the Lives of Students

Description: 
Science & Engineering in the Lives of Students (SELS) has the objective of designing an augmentation to teaching science to address pressing issues in science education that affect a majority of school age youth. The SELS website examines science in the built environments in which we live, work, and spend leisure time. The site is for students taking science in school, teachers who work with those students, or anyone who is curious about how science is “used” in everyday life.

COSEY (Center for Outreach in Science & Engineering for Youth) Camps

Description: 
COSEY has developed a library of project-based activity kits with a sustainability theme that will be used to engage 6th-8th grade students in multi-day summer camps to be held in communities throughout Oregon during the summer. Camp activities are rich with possibilities, including a mock oil spill activity in which students test substances that can remove oil from water, a homemade solar panel lesson in which student use titanium dioxide and berry juice to generate an electrical current, a computer design lesson in which students use innovative software to create a "green" dream home, and much more. The outreach program is partnering with Boys and Girls Clubs, 4-H programs, Oregon GEAR UP programs, and other extracurricular and summer camp organizations to expand opportunities in science and engineering education to diverse students across the state, focusing on programs with a track record for serving rural and underserved students.
