Campers should be entering the 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th grade in the Fall, and should also be from the Oregon Coast STEM Hub region. If you're not sure whether your school district is in the Oregon Coast STEM Hub, check the Hub's list of Partners. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

More About COSEY Mobile Science and Engineering Camps
The Center for Outreach in Science and Engineering for Youth (COSEY) serves the K-20 community in the recruitment and retention of students to science and engineering, with an emphasis on underrepresented groups. Rural students have fewer opportunities to experience hands-on STEM activites, but mobile STEM camps reach kids who live on the coast. http://cosey.oregonstate.edu/mobile-stem-camps
