Introducing STEM Bites: Oregon’s regional STEM Hubs have come together to bring engaging, hands-on science and engineering learning ideas to educators across the state! Hands on science can be challenging to do during distance learning, these bites are designed to help. Each “Bite” can be done at home, in a classroom, or in a program space. Bites primarily use simple materials that families already have or can readily acquire; we know how hard it can be to get specialized materials to students.

The STEM Bites are organized by grade band (K-2, 3-4, and 5-6). The collection includes explorations of our environment, engineering challenges, science investigations, observations and more! We will add new Bites to the website monthly throughout 2021.

Try one Bite with your learners, or try them all!
