About This Blog  August 22nd, 2013

Science & Math Investigative Learning Experiences (SMILE) is a precollege program at Oregon State University, that supports out-of-school time, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs and teacher professional development. The mission of SMILE and our partnerships is to inspire and prepare minority, low-income, historically underrepresented, and other educationally underserved students, in mostly rural areas, to graduate from high school, enroll and succeed in higher education, and pursue STEM careers.

This blog exists as a resource to educators, both for those involved in the SMILE Program and others looking for curriculum, interesting articles, and general ideas for classrooms. We will be providing educational materials and articles on a continual basis, as well as updated administrative and teacher workshop information. We hope to have several postings each month with new activities for use in SMILE Clubs or classrooms.

We hope you find this to be a useful resource for leading your SMILE Club!
