Oregon Science Project

Join the Oregon Science Project: A statewide, equity-focused initiative to connect Oregon’s K-12 teachers in real time ONLINE around the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Sign up here  to join a small team of K-12 educators and dive into what NGSS is and how it can help us reach more students through authentic science learning experiences. Each team is run on the online platform of Zoom and lead by an Oregon Science Project Learning Facilitator who will provide support and guidance as you navigate the NGSS and your own understanding of what it means for our students. In dialogue online in real time with others you will also connect your learning with your classroom practice. When you sign up you will choose days and times that work best for your schedule this school year. This is for all K-12 teachers and K-5 teachers are highly encouraged to participate!

All participation can be done from your computer with no need for travel. 

The program runs from October 2017-April 2018 with a registration deadline of September 30, 2017.

Teachers can earn 40 PDU’s at no cost, or 2 credits for $120 total. For more information about the Oregon Science Project please go to 

The Learning Facilitators leading these regional teams are K-12 teacher leaders located throughout Oregon who are trained on the Oregon Science Project NGSS PD Modules.  The Oregon Science Project is an equity-focused, statewide professional learning network designed to build regional science education leadership throughout the state. The Oregon Department of Education awarded Math and Science Partnership funds to Eastern Oregon University to launch the Oregon Science Project in 2016.
