June 2020 e-Blast



These last few months have been unusual, to say the least. Our coastal communities are facing new challenges, and we are all finding new ways of living, learning, and working together. In the midst of many changes, the Oregon Coast STEM Hub is also undergoing a transition, as our Director Lisa Blank recently accepted a new position in Arizona. We will miss her, and we wish her the best in her future endeavors. Read more about Lisa, her accomplishments with the OCSH, and our Hub's plans during this transition. Tracy Crews is serving as Interim Director, and can be reached at

Summer Camps

COVID-19 has understandably changed how summer camp programming for youth will be handled this year. Some camps have turned virtual, some have been postponed, and some have been officially canceled for this year. We are updating our Summer and School Breaks Page with information as it becomes available. If you are are a STEM summer camp provider on the Oregon Coast, let us know!


Share your science and career through online interactions with students of all ages who are currently learning from home. Let us know how we can share your local STEM opportunities with the rest of the Hub.
