What Other Say About ORREC
Community leaders recognize us as an essential organization that helps students and teachers reach K-12 STEM requirements through hands-on learning opportunities.
The ORREC “Experience” will assist us greatly in providing tools an techniques that will help our students gather and analyze information, make informed decisions, engage in creative discover, and explore new vehicles for learning.
I strongly support the Oregon Resources Research and Education Center Fort Euchre project. Because all students in Oregon K-12 school districts must meet STEM exit standards, the ORREC experience will assist in providing the necessary tools and techniques to help them meet these standards.
I am writing to support the Oregon Resources Research and Education Center (ORREC) project. The ORREC project will help K-12 learners and community members of all ages to develop an awareness and understanding of the importance of sustainable management and utilization of local natural resources along the coast of Oregon.
The Early Learning experience on the South Coast is enhanced when students at a young age experience firsthand experience with our living environment. ORREC will particularly provide Early Learning educators an opportunity to develop lesson plans they can include in their curriculum around the outdoor experience.
ORRECs mission would become a crucial component in work currently underway: the Sudden Oak Death Task Force, co-convened by Senator Merkley and myself, Oregon’s first marine reserve at Redfish Rocks, OSU’s new field station, just to name a few. These projects will be enhanced by ORREC, with the researchers and educators working closely with students on a myriad of natural resource issue related work.
