May 1st marks the beginning of STEM Week Oregon!
STEM Week Oregon is a two-week state-wide celebration that engages young people in activities involving science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
According to the U.S Department of Education, only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in a STEM career.
Our very own Betsy Quitugua has been a huge STEM fan since childhood, and is currently pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering.
This week she will join students across the state indulging in many fun STEM related activities.
