Ready to Play in the Park this July?
Did you know that July is Park and Recreation Month? While it’s been celebrated since 1985, the annual event became official when the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution in July 2009. This year, the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is challenging everyone to “get their play on” with their local parks and recreation. See this infographic about how vital play is for the well-being, physical health, and personal interactions of children and adults. Find more resources HERE to support your program or visit Oregon Recreation & Park Association to see how we all celebrate play during Park & Recreation Month.
STEM Out of School
As part of our partnership with STEM Next, as a STEM Systems state, OregonASK wants to highlight local STEM programs to show some of the amazing things already happening in Oregon. Please Contact Us if you have a program we could highlight.
We understand the importance of providing engaging STEM experiences for youth, particularly for those historically underserved youth who do not have ample opportunities for hands-on learning. We want to give every youth the chance to see themselves as a scientist, engineer or mathematician.
Take a look at our Informal STEM in Oregon and Oregon STEM Fact Sheet to see a snapshot of Oregon. You can also take a look at the Afterschool Alliance Full STEM Ahead Report that provides recommendations for increasing STEM opportunities for all youth.
