Skagit STEAM Educator Resource Guide
The Skagit STEAM Educator Resource Guide is a new resource that provides a comprehensive listing of Environmental and Conservation Education Opportunities for K-12 Youth in the Skagit Watershed. The goal of the new resource guide is to assist in achieving an environmentally-literate student population by offering quality education opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art, and math that can extend the teaching resources available in local schools and other children’s programs. The Resource Guide includes a comprehensive listing of conservation and environmental education programs currently offered by community partners in the Skagit Watershed. Over 50 programs offered by more than 20 local community groups have been compiled to produce this new Resource Guide for educators.

Congresswoman Suzan DelBene kicked off the second annual Spotlight on Women in STEM that attracted nearly 400 area junior and high school students from all Skagit schools. She shared her journey in STEM fields. “As someone who made a career in STEM before coming to Congress, I know how important it is for young women to develop the skills to compete in a 21st century economy,” she said. “Understanding how things work will benefit you wherever you go! I want to encourage you to pursue your passion.”
