Story Opp - STEM Partnership in Oregon Brings Experts to Schools

Virtual Chats or In-person Meetings Through Oregon Connections (Powered by Rapidly Growing Ed-tech, Nepris)

Contact our team to interview teachers and professionals who meet and chat with students either in-person or virtually through Oregon Connections. 


The South Metro Salem STEM Partnership serving Salem and Portland was formed to connect schools with STEM professionals who can come to classrooms for in-person chats with students. In addition, through Oregon Connections these meetings happen virtually in interactive web-conferencing giving professionals from all over the country (or world) a way to talk with students while opening their eyes to the possibilities in STEM.

Interactions such as these are critical to filling the STEM job gap and getting students to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Nepris, the technology powering Oregon Connections, is being used around the country to address this critical issue in education.

Teachers in Oregon are available to talk about the impact of these personal interactions (either in-person or virtual) on their students. Teachers also have access to the Nepris library of archived sessions where they can select from thousands of videos where professionals and students talk together and get excited about STEM.
