The CO•/Corvallis Maker Fair At the CO• w're bringing together makers from across campus, Corvallis, and the whole State of Oregon to celebrate and share their methods for hands-on learning. From the creative problem-solving skills so crucial to education in the 21st Century to the benefits of quick prototyping tools needed to drive an innovative economy, every discipline and every individual has something to learn and something to teach. Each year we host the Corvallis Maker Fair on the OSU campus, inviting maker groups of all ages and interests to share their love of making with community guests. We average between 40-50 maker groups and 1500-2000 visitors every year. Stipends are available to support maker exhibits. Spring Art, Engineering, Math, Science Charles Robinson:

Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) Community Outreach and Education Core (COEC) COEP’s community outreach mission is to translate the research findings of the EHS Center into outreach programs that are useful and relevant to the public. Additionally, COEP’s education mission is to promote health and science literacy by improving understanding of environmental health science and the role of environmental factors in the cause and prevention of disease. Program activities include student and teacher workshops, public awareness seminars and workshops and other community programs that highlight the importance of environmental health research for the general public and the K-12 audience. COEP also facilitates interactions between university scientists and the general public, students and teachers. This includes helping to coordinate scientist visits in classrooms as well as bringing students/teachers on campus for lab tours. Fall, Spring, Winter, Summer Science Diana Rohlman:
